Pretty desktop background don't offer increased productivity either, but most people seem quite fond of them despite this. People will also argue about if a certain icon set is pretty or ugly for hours at an end, yet no one has shown objectively that a pretty icon set increases productivity.

And to round it off, while I have no idea if expose on OSX has actually increased my productivity or not, I find it a great feature which makes the computer more enjoyable and easy to use.

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.
