Hello This might be the greatest news of the day for some.. including me So neowin states
It's not really a surprise that Microsoft is already at work on the generation of Windows which we will call Windows 9, for now. In a recent change for Microsoft, they have begun using code names that eventually turn into the product that hits retail. For example, the code-name of Windows 7, was Windows 7, same with Windows 8 and as you would expect, the codename for Windows 9 is, you guessed it, Windows 9. Of course, Microsoft will likely refer to the next generation of Windows as Windows.next or Windows vNext too.
MsftKitchen did a bit of digging around Windows 9 and already found the moniker listed on several Microsoft employees profiles and other locations around the web. While we had little doubt that Windows 9 was already in the planning/development stages, Microsoft employees are wasting no time and are wearing Windows 9 as a badge of honor.
What would a good rumor be without conflicting information? Even though Microsoft employees may be referring to the next generation of Windows as Windows 9 or Windows vNext, Win8China is also reporting that development work has kicked off as well. But, this source is saying that Windows 9 is being called Windows Blue, or will have a sub-component by the code-name Windows Blue (translation confusion). Further, the Windows Blue moniker is said to be a new base for the Windows platform too. At this time, it is far to early to speculate if Blue will be the foundation for the next generation of Windows; Win8China expects the first build of the next gen platform to arrive in the near future.
i have done bad things in my past but will do better things in the future. sorry to andy, mrpijee, linuxlover, and hounshell for the things i have done. i repent my sins to be a better man, a better husband, and a better father.

I think by vNext he means 9, as in Windows 9... or 8.5, as in Windows 8.5... Not sure what he means by Post-RTM though, doesn't make any sense.
Sure it does. Not long after the release of Windows 7, screenshots of builds such as Build 7700 were leaked. Builds that are compiled near immediately after an RTM of the prior product are often considered "post-RTM" builds. Also, nobody knows yet if Windows Blue is Windows "8.5" o a full blown release of Windows. It hasn't been made perfectly clear yet.
