Show windows on all workspaces? (scale addon not working)

http://askubuntu.com – Is there a way to show windows on ALL WORKSPACES? I can use alt+tab, after changing behaviour through ccsm, but Unity switcher only shows icons, which is very ugly and old-fashioned. Showing windows is far more convenient, and very common in modern workspaces, like mac and other linux's window managers. I've found a solution, wich involves recompiling compiz!! Seriously?? It sounds like old days: compile it yourself!. I though Ubuntu was different... Removing features from source code is not the way I think. What about flexibility and freedom of choice? Without a a way to see windows in all (HowTos)
