Are there any decent tools aside from MS PowerPoint to create GUI mockups? I've tried Balsamiq Mockups. It's great but it's not free. Are there any tools just like it, but free?

As it currently stands, this question is not a good fit for our Q&A format. We expect answers to be supported by facts, references, or specific expertise, but this question will likely solicit debate, arguments, polling, or extended discussion. If you feel that this question can be improved and possibly reopened, see the FAQ for guidance.
Why does this application have to be free?
From the way you've worded your question, it sounds to me like you're simply too cheap to buy a great piece of software. You said it yourself:
I've tried Balsamiq Mockups. It's great
Why is a great productivity tool like Balsamiq Mockups not worth $79? Please, stop expecting every piece of software to be free. Developers need to make a living too, and if they put in hard work, and create a great piece of software that you enjoy, why should they not be able to charge you for it?
I half expect that this post will get down-voted for not offering a true answer to your post, but I think making this point is worth loosing a few reputation.
In light of discussion in the comments below, I will be purchasing Balsamiq Mockups for the Op. Enjoy your FREE Balsamiq Mockups Desktop license, Terence!

I like Pencil Project. It is free. There are extra templates you can download. I added Flowchart Shapes recently. They have sketch-like, shapes, Basic Web, GTK Widgets, Windows XP, and basic shapes.
Google Docs with drawings.
It's free and I've heard of quite a few people creating their mockups with it.
