I'm looking for some kind of persistent "alt-tab" window, which woul allow to see miniatures of active windows, as the Alt+Tab shortcut does (but can't be always shown AFAIK).

Some ideas or cool apps ?

Try Tiles from StarDock. (free version has the requested feature)

With Tiles you can quickly view and manage your running applications by simply looking to the edge of your screen.

I read from the site, but I did not see if it was capable of displaying what I want, @Lamb's answer is closer to what I want, but I would have to pay to use it. – Benj Apr 18 '13 at 15:57
@Lamb's answer leads to exactly what I wanted. Thanks & +1 for the help. – Benj Apr 18 '13 at 16:06
