It would be nice if there is a app/shortcut to hide all windows (and show the desktop)
and revert to show all windows.

Yes, that's what I'm looking for.
But I can't find anything similar
Maybe there is nothing like this using Ubuntu 12.10 ?
I'm using Cairo Dock without the Unity-stuff.

well, this applet is already in the package !
you can configure it for showing the desktop on clic or middle-click, or showing all the windows (Expose of Compiz), or showing all the desktops (again, a Compiz feature).

the Switcher applet also allows you to show all windows on middle-click (through a menu or Expose).

On this screenshot, it's the icon between the Switcher and the Calendar applets:

(With the Default-Panel theme, you can do a middle click (or a right click) on this icon to show/hide all windows)

That's the thing I was searching for.
