You can also right-click on an empty spot in the taskbar and select "Task Manager".

Can someone answer a really quick and dumb question for me. Is there an equivalent to task Manager in Linux. I want to be able to see my processor usage on the fly. I keep task manager resident in the toolbar in XP at all times and I have gotten very used to that. Is there something equivalent to that? Thanks
There is no Spune!

When your in the Gui try hiting CTRL+ESC. Otherwise in a shell you can type "top" without quotes. After run top you can press "h" to view help or "k" with the PID to kill a process.

Yea, Kprocview for KDE ( in system Process management ) is one that comes to mind, for Gnome, lemme check in gnome it's called "system monitor".
