Well, I think the effect makes sense in OSX because there is no taskbar like in kde, gnome, or windows. It actually serves a functional purpose in OSX. In gnome it's a little redundant but it can be cool anyway. What it does is change the way users minimize their windows. With scale there is less minimizing since flipping through windows is easy and both expose and scale work better with unminimized windows.
