Task manager in Ubuntu

Every now and again you want to just end a program or kill the process.  Where the heck is the task manager?  Well, I found it and you can even bind it to ctrl+alt+delete.

If you go to to the top bar to System -> Administration -> System monitor you will find the task manager you are looking for.

Now you may want to bind it to ctrl + alt + delete.  Simply run this in your terminal window:
gconftool-2 -t str --set /apps/metacity/global_keybindings/run_command_1 "<Control><Alt>Delete"
gconftool-2 -t str --set /apps/metacity/keybinding_commands/command_1 "gnome-system-monitor"
You can also go to System -> Preferences -> Keyboard shortcuts and set a shortcut in there.  You will be running "gnome-system-monitor"
