Try it out, I suspect you're referring to switching between virtual desktops.

Example of a random Expose effect:

Didn't find an example of sharpen, but this page mentions it:

Not a clue

I haven't seen that term used outside the Sugar desktop myself

Well it's not necessarily a bad thing. KDE, Google, Gnome, MacOS and
Windows Vista all seem to have this feature now, so I guess someone

use to you if the noise level on this list is too high.
