Hide/unhide applications on Mac OS X

How can I hide all applications but the current one on Mac OS X (Snow Leopard), and restore them again?

"As far as I know, the system does not keep track of which apps were visible prior to the most recent “hide other apps” action.

You might find the third party apps Think or Isolator useful though (found them both via “6 Apps To Help You Focus & Be Productive [Mac]”)."

"You can make a keyboard shortcut for the ""Show All"" (or any) menu option by going to:

System Preferences > Keyboard > Keyboard Shortcuts > select ""Application Shortcuts"" > highlight ""All Applications"" > click ""+"" > type Show All in the ""Menu Title:"" field, and enter your keystrokes in the ""Keyboard Shortcut:"" field."
