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.
