Command-Tab for application switching has been availabe in OS X since, well, 10.0. The big deal here is the interface for providing the switch.

Up to now, command-tab would just darken the Dock icon and display the name of the app you were switching to. In Panther however, the icons of only the open (and thus available) apps are overlayed upon the entire darkened screen so an app can be selected to switch to.

Just one of the cool details of the GUI that Apple is working on addressing.
