Hi,

Well, I was stuck in the "kicker context" when answered first but indeed
you can use conky (that's what I do by now).
Conky allows to have windows in the foreground and it's easy to make a
switching script that you can launch from the kicker dock.
This can be used in any desktop environment !

If you need some script samples (switching script and conky stuffs) I
can upload you some somewhere.
