Hi,this is my first post in BetaArchive. :D
There is a Post-RTM Windows 8 Build's screenshot.
Image
As you can see, it's in Traditional Chinese and its build number is 9220. It's Pro Edition. This screenshot was found in a Chinese forum called PCBeta. There isn't any other information about this build. We only know its build number. It may be Windows "Blue".
Sorry for my poor English. I'm a Chinese.

Anything checked :P
I doubt this is real. It's just a winver screenshot, and it doesn't show the full tag.
(heck, winver in wzor's 7700 shots showed full buildtag!)

Maybe because it's not a beta build.

No it's not. It may be just a "test-for-something" build.

Sorry. Here is the original link:

Maybe it is only a patch for Windows 8. But it's real.

Actually, although I understand your doubts, I personally believe that more recent builds of Windows show the build tag in the lower right corner of the screen rather than the About Windows dialog box. If I remember correctly (still need to look back to be sure), the Developer Preview build of Windows 8 (Build 8102) was the first to only show the build tag on the desktop rather than within the About Windows dialog box.

However, this is indeed very interesting. Are there any details on what this is exactly (whether the upcoming Windows Blue update to Windows 8 or otherwise), and when it was compiled? I also remember PCBeta's screenshots of various Windows 8 builds back in the day, which would probably explain how they got this build (if it's real, that is, which I personally believe it is).

I will say this, though, that I have been searching for any real information (not "64-bit only, incremental updates only"-esque speculation or unfounded rumors) regarding the development of Windows past the RTM release of Windows 8, especially for Windows 9, but without any real luck until now. I'm glad that we finally got an actual screenshot of what appears to be a post-RTM build of Windows 8, and really, it was (in many ways) quite a nice Christmas gift to everyone here at BetaArchive for everyone to keep up to date with Microsoft's latest developments. :)

However, as much as I personally believe that this is real, then remember that whatever it is, it's still extremely early in its stage, and that we're still very far from having anything near a 7850-level build. Yet even despite this, they still must start somewhere... :)

This guy Aaron Cajes has experience with crashing mozilla nightly version 19 on Windows 8 RTM build 9220!

Here you can see the crash report.

Maybe this isn't any kind of proof, but I don't see a reason why this guy would lie for firefox crashes.

I think we should appreciate what MS is trying to do. There are a lot of changes in there software development and OS. From what I have gathered so far, I think we wouldn't wait long before we see a major update to windows 8. That said, it isn't a surprise to see more screenshots in the coming months...

Is there any actual proof that this build is indeed Windows Blue (other than mere speculation/opinion), and not something else, or do we only have the information that it's a post-RTM build of Windows 8?

Also, remember that as I've said several times on this forum, the development of Windows Blue (an update to Windows 8, most likely the planned Windows 8 Platform Update) and Windows 9 is almost certainly being done side by side. However, we're also a very long way away from having anything near a 7850-level build, yet, and probably will be for at least several months.

Infact, to be honest, I highly doubt that there's much difference between the feature set of Windows Blue and the feature set of Windows 9 at this still extremely early stage of development. In my opinion, I would personally say that Windows 9 at the moment is essentially a version of Windows Blue (which as I said, is just an update to Windows 8) with a few characteristics changed to further differentiate between any version of Windows 8 and Windows 9 itself. And really, practically any version of Windows developed within the last decade started development in the same way (even as far back as Whistler, which of course is Windows XP).

Also, to the original poster (quoted above), if you have trouble understanding what I'm saying, I understand that your English is not as good as most people's here, but I still was able to understand you without much (if any) trouble at all.

In just about every case, a service pack would start with the same build number with the last digit shifted up one number, and would have a five digit extension at the end of it, similar to this:
"9201.16384" (note that I am NOT saying that the build necessarily exists, just giving an example of what a service pack build number would look like)

So no, although we still don't know much else about this build, on the other hand, we do know that it's definitely not a service pack.

They do jump builds after RTM for post-RTM builds to ensure there'd never be any conflict with SP builds - I think it's 20, but I can't remember where I read that. I also seem to recall someone saying lowest four bits are reserved - so 9200-9215.

Well, it's more interesting when a MSTW employee posted on pcbeta that this build is an alpha stage of Windows codename "9".

Maybe microsoft is changing all, starting by the build. But, in any case, i hope that the Start button will return.
