AveDesk looks just like Dashboard for Windows. I'd say give gDesklets a go, last time I used it there was no hotkey functionality but I recently heard they were implementing it. Not sure if it's done yet or not but that's close to what you want.

Did you actually look for gDesklets before asking that? Because if you did, I'd imagine you'd have seen the Just An Icon display on the gDesklets home page which is the closest thing you're going to get.
