Default What launcher do you use on the motion?

Since it is ics,
Currently use nova.

I would love to use nova, but you can't use the factory widgets unless you install nova as a system app

I'm similar to you. This is my very first smart phone so I'm still learning. But I tried a two launchers (forget which ones) but I ended up preferring stock for the time being. I still have much to learn though.

ADW EX on mine, but ADW notifier doesn't seem to work. Probably switching back to stock, it looked pretty clean as it was.

Nova, apex and holo launcher can all give you that stock ICS feel. I use holo launcher myself. They have two though. Holo launcher is based off ICS, holo launcher HD is based off of jelly bean. I use holo launcher HD.

You could rename your launcher of choice to the same name as the stock launcher then switch Em out. Reboot done. It was the same way on the connect.
