I've recently purchased WindowBlinds, after upgrading to Windows 8 from Windows 7.
I'm unable to use WindowBlinds skins though, only because one dealbreaker feature is missing: the ability to fully customize mouse-over highlight image for ListView, for non-selected entries. (this is actually the main reason I purchased WindowBlinds for)
Currently one can customize the image for the mouse-over highlight for selected entries, but the image for mouse-over highlight for non-selected entries is the *same* as non-mouse-over selected entries! This makes for a very confusing UI in the ListView as you cannot clearly see which entries are selected and which are not.
I thought originally this might be a SkinStudio issue, but after looking at the .UIS files it seems it is like a limitation of WindowBlinds itself. Windows itself allows customization of all 4 states by modifying the .mssstyle file. See what I mean:
