What you're describing is the Mac OS 'dock'. There are lots available 
for linux, most people I know of use AWN


It doesn't zoom for reasons mentioned on the FAQ:


But for full-on "cutiely", Cairo Dock 2


On my Macs I disable the zoom of the dock but otherwise, it is a good 
feature and a quick google for "linux dock" produces many options.

Hope this helps.
