List running applications

I'm wanting to list all running applications' PID? Preferable only those that have windows (ie are not a service or some other terminal app).

Use the following command to see all the processes that are running:
# ps ax
As for seeing only those that have windows, I'm not sure. Check out the man pages for ps.

will show you the cpu and mem usage. Quite nice since it auto updates.
