    Hold down your Home button, it will show the same kind of popup as Windows does when you Alt-Tab.
    There's also a more thorough list (with background apps) buried in the Settings somewhere.

    There's also numerous task managers on the App Market which will show you running programs and let you close them.

    Task Killer on the market, will display all running application and allow you to shut down ones you do not want to use. Helps speed things up.

    holding down Home shows you recently run apps, not running apps, unfortunately.

    you can see all running apps in settings - apps - manage apps - (long delay) - menu - filter - running

    but there are still an awful lot of 'em :)

    the third-party filter is a useful way to see your downloaded apps, too...
