    CMD+OPTION+W, but it only works per application.
    Or you could hide all other applications (including windows) via CMD+OPTION+H.

    I think the only way to accomplish that would be any of the following:

    Logout
    Restart
    Shutdown

    I'm sure that's not the answer you were quite looking for, but I don't think there is any other way.

    its option+cmd+W and option+cmd+H, however that only closes and hides, the OP is maybe looking to quit all.

    you could press cmd+tab and then while holding cmd press Q. or Google an Automator service/action or Apple Script that will quit all open apps.
