The video linked in the Technet announcement is interesting:

blue: Windows
red: Office
green: XBOX
yellow: ???

Maybe Microsoft is planning a new product line ... (if yellow was Server or dev tools there would be no reason not to include it in the video)

Hmm I would have thought ...

Blue - Windows (For BSOD)
Red - XBox (For RROD)
Yellow - ASP/.NET (Yellow screen of death)
Green - ... Okay stuck on this one.

While these lists are fun, it's important to note the changing ways popular culture views tech people."

Isn't pure caffeine powder deadly? I'm guessing this product doesn't actually contain "caffeine" powder or we'll hear about how some kid killed him/herself with a pack of these canisters.

Even worse ... its odorless, tasteless, and dissolves instantly in water. Thankfully most of us from the 80's generation have built up an immunity to it.
