    Is there a menu bar app that allows quick access to the terminal. Kinda like Kubuntu?

    Shove an Alias in the Dock??

    Unsure if this would help but you could go to your applications folder (or utilities, cannot remember exactly where) and drag the terminal app onto your dock. This is something I have done for programming on my Mac.

    I use quicksilver to launch most of my programs. I've heard of people using spotlight as a launcher as well.

    It's been a while since I've used Ubuntu but are you just looking for a basic launcher? If so, here's something that would work. If not maybe have a look at macupdate.com - there are a lot of these types of apps.

    I use spotlight as a launcher already but I'm looking for something that lives in the menu bar and I can just click it and it has a small dropdown where I can quickly compile and test something.
