Alternatives to Movable Type

Is there an alternative to Movable Type that is a decent open source publishing blog platform that can be fully programmed to be graphically modified and inserted into a custom website?

As with this question
, a friend has a site that has an embedded Movable Type blog that I set up on a page of her personal website for her years ago. She hasn't used the blog frequently, and when she tried to login last week, the login link didn't work. I did some research and it seems that the company has rebranded MT as a "content management system
" requiring $$, and ended the open source publishing, which it seems is what led to the inactive login to the previous version on her blog (MT 3.3).
I'd like to learn of other options to MT, since the $595 minimum for its use is significantly over the top. The most important aspect would be low- or no-cost blogging software that can be inserted into a single page of an otherwise static-content site. Professional experience would be much appreciated.
