    I've put together a few pictures to show you what I mean, but some of the grey stripes that adorn OS X have been replaced by plain white after I installed Motion. What happened? It looks weird and ugly now, I want my stripes back!

    Yeah I was just thinking "Yeah, that looks exactly like mine." and then I realised that it IS exactly the same as mine! I don't know what stripes you're referring to - mail is like that.

    Yeah that's the new 'Plastic' theme that some apps now use (mail, system prefs, certain widgets and a few others..).

    Tiger did that, not Motion.

    everybody is saying that it looks exactly like theirs, but I figured i would prove it. It was tiger that made it look like that, and I personally like it..

    Up until Jaguar, OS X had very noticeable pinstripes in window backgrounds.
    For example,

    (Look at that side-by-side with the attached Tiger images.)
    The stripes have been toned down since then, but they're still there.

    Yeah, I like the fact that the stripes have been toned down personally. They were a bit too strong before. However, I don't like the new "plasticy" look that some of Tigers programs have taken on. And I really want my old mail back (just with the new features of the new one, lol).

    Yeah, I don't see why Apple changed the look in Tiger the way they did. It's just change for change's sake, with no actual improvement. And the new Mail look is just awful.
