It's looking like blue will ship, or try to ship in time for the back to school rush, so late August or early September unless they target the holidays and we get another November release which they seem to like to do as of late.

If this build tag is legit, it not only confirms the earlier rumor that windows blue has reached M1, it also confirms the name "Windows Blue".

About the soft forum member Khohol, he is the guy who first posted the 9319 screen-shot, which was later quoted by the Russian site MicrosoftPortal, and then quoted by other tech forums and bloggers. Also, MicrosoftPortal has also quoted this new M1 build tag.

I'm guessing M2 will be when they hit 94xx though there was that bit about blue RTM being 9600.

So Microsoft are aiming for an OS release less than a year after Windows 8? Unless it's free I doubt it, unless they were trying to **** off their customers.

With the now confirmed total failure of windows 8 I am sure windows 9 will be rushed out the door even quicker than 7 was rushed out to fix the vista disaster.

And who confirmed Win8 is a total failure? Or is this just your own bias against the OS?

Who said it wouldn't be free? Blue is being done mostly be the same team that's worked on Windows service packs and those have always come out around one year after RTM. This is still on that same cycle but it's also going to bring features and not just bug fixes.

Uh, you are mistaken.

Blue is just like a service pack. It's not Windows 9.

is Blue going to be Windows 9 or is it going to be a large content patch like XP SP2?

Hey, I'm just quoting GP007's post.

Jeez, no wonder everyone hates these topics. Everyone gets all over-defensive :no:
