Windows 8 Interesting

Just read this and found it interesting, somewhat exciting and a little bit frightening.
Windows Next: Just call it 'Blue'? | ZDNet
I wonder what it may mean to we consumers either desktop or mobile users. Perhaps the sound of the other shoe dropping?

I'm not clear if Blue is simply what we in the Windows world typically call a service pack, which is a rollup of fixes and updates. Or maybe Blue is more of a feature pack, which would/could include be a rollup of fixes plus some new features.

It will be interesting to see how that turns out. I think if it's "more of an interim release", then it's less likely to be just a service pack. I think Microsoft had a greater vision for Windows 8 which they were unable to complete at this point in its lifecycle i.e. moving completely to metro with all desktop applications optimized for the interface, etc.
