I would like to reskin Windows 7. I have bought Window Blinds, but I am looking for clean and simplistic Skins, Window Blind Skins are extremely pimped out.

Are there any alternative to Window Blinds?

I guess I really want my Windows 7 install to look as close as possible to Linux Mint. That would be awesome if this was possible.

+1 vote, I'm also interested in this. Window Blinds is not my style, don't like it. – Shiki May 31 '10 at 16:00
I agree that most of skins for WB are heavy, but you can also find some lighter ones, depending on the author, like some of these ones. – Gnoupi May 31 '10 at 16:02
@Gnoupi, I'm looking for something simplistic that functions correctly, if you know any skins, please share, thank you. – JL. May 31 '10 at 16:10
Also anyone willing to develop a Linux Mint Skin for Window Blinds - I would pay for. – JL. Jun 4 '10 at 9:41

Tried that also. You have to patch the dlls. Thats ok but still..only VistaVG was somewhat OK as a skin, but had some strange issue. – Shiki Jun 5 '10 at 16:04
