Is there any way to get the same kind of functionality as the programs list in Windows. I love the whole dock affair but I don't want to have all of my programs in there. Having to clear the screen with Expose, then double click OS X on my desktop, then click Applications, then find what I want, double click, then task switch back to the Applications window to clean up and close it is rather long winded. Ideally I'd have an extra option in the Apple menu that lists all of the Applications in alphabetical order. Like the Recent Items menu. Either that or a similar kind of menu that would appear after clicking on a special icon in the dock.
