I am looking for a freeware (maybe open source) alternative to WindowBlinds. Any suggestions?

More precise: I am looking for a free tool with the same features as WindowBlinds. I don't care about using WindowBlinds design files.

CustoPack Tools is a good alternative to WindowBlinds.

CustoPack Tools is a free software that allows you to easily customize Windows appearance through the installation of packs. Made by the CrystalXP.net team, it is compatible with Windows XP (32-bit), Windows Vista (32 or 64-bit), and Windows 7 (32 or 64-bit).

A quick search in Google lead me to this web site, which seems to include a number of free alternatives:

The site you have linked contains a description of windowblinds and a link to their website, due I know what windowblinds is, this is not very helpful. –  Michael K Aug 12 '11 at 7:56
    
You weren't asking what windowblinds is, rather you were asking for alternatives that are free. Yes, that web page includes an introduction describing what windowblinds is, but it also includes a list of various products that look like they provide similar features. Perhaps your question isn't specific enough. –  Randolf Richardson Aug 12 '11 at 8:05
    
I edited my question to be more precise. I am not looking for a software that does something related to windowblinds, I am looking for a replacement. –  Michael K Aug 12 '11 at 8:13
