    use xbindkeys to bind the key sequence ctrl+shift+escape to launch gnome-system-monitor

    thats what i have at least, and works the same as task manager on windows

    From a terminal:

    Code:
    top
    Then press 'q'.
    Code:
    killall XXX
    XXX is the program in "top" that was giving you problems.

    ok if you go to terminal
    type in
    ps aux
    then
    kill [PID#]
    without []


    and there are many process managers
    just search in synaptics

    System > Administration > System Monitor > *Processes Tab. Find the process and click "End Process".

    Press ALT + F2, then type xkill <press-enter>. Now click on the application you want to nuke.

    the most Windows-like way must be to go to System->Administration->System Monitor and go to the processes tab
