From reading up on this a bit it seems like the thing to read between the lines is not that "blue" will become a more tablet minded evolution of 8, but that they are getting rid of the troublesome RT version.
That would make sense but they'll hide in a convoluted way to not let us say "told you".
Now even then - despite all talk of sales figures of 8 ... it's not used out there.
My biggest site: of the windows using visitors (about 3/4 of them all), only a measly 4.7% used 8. It doesn't even beat the "failed" Vista adoption rate by a long shot (at 10.72%).
Hence I expect this "blue" version to be out soon enough to replace "8" and "RT" and be marketed as what we always wanted.
