Cement board or blue board for tile shower?

I've been reading on here and have gathered that green board is a no no for a tile shower. I was going to use the new blue board but just saw about 3 threads where people said to use cement board.

Should I use cement board as my backer for the tile? Or is blue board still the way to go. I haven't bought the blue board or cement board yet. I just installed my tub last night. I want to do it right and don't mind paying a little extra if it's going to last longer. I'll only be in the house maybe 5 years max, but still want it to be done right.

After more reading. I've decided to go with this from Lowes. http://www.gp.com/build/product.aspx?pid=6388
