Launcher and window list

When using Om2008.9, I keep getting annoyed at the distinction between
the list of open windows (available by clicking at the top of the
screen) and the list of applications that I can launch: most of the time
the list of windows is a subset of the list of applications and having
to first get the window list, then press Home to finally get to start
a new application is just not right.

Is there somewhere some integrated application-launcher/window-manager,
kind of like Mac OS X's dock?  I'd really like to be able to just click
at the top of the screen (or the AUX button, maybe) and be brought
directly to an application launcher, which indicates which of those
applications are already running, and also includes extra windows
I might have opened.
