I guess your modders agreed that it's "more green" because there isn't a tower of smoke going out the roof but I sure would like to see the amount of fuel burned to sufficiently freeze then shatter someone in the aforementioned manner.
(Though, I would mod you +1 awesome idea, regardless.)
The statement when properly read is saying the the Xbox 360, and several of its components such as the Live Marketplace, Netflix streaming content through the Xbox Dashboard, Facebook/Twitter Dashboard apps, and Live.FM streaming audio wouldn't have come to pass.
All of which is perfectly true, had the XBox 1 not done well, it's like that the 360 would have been canned in R&D, and thus these elements of the 360 experience wouldn't have come into existence either.
As a teacher, may I say, I would have considered stapling your lips shut.
So good to see our youth are in good hands.
It seems to me that we are a nation of wildly conflicting laws, and everything can be "made" illegal in some way, regardless of the actual intent. This is why our courtrooms are so crowded, and 'justice' moves at a snail's pace.

How about addressing the increasingly long list of features people actually want instead of a resource intensive API to make my windows translucent? Or, making what was arguably Vista's best and at the same time worst feature (UAC) something that works without making itself so intrusive as to be the first time users desire to disable?!
"and ensuring the future progress of the U.S. civil space program"
Most of their objective list itself seems to imply (to me at least) they are for a civil space program, though I suppose it could be a masquerade for a desire to kill it and loot the corpse.
Refuting local suspicions of malice Dell spokesman David Frink states:

Their plans to reduce employment can be found here:
Here are some highlights:
Dell has 82,200 permanent workers, including 18,000 in Central Texas, and 5,300 temporary workers worldwide. The layoffs are expected to affect both groups...
In its last large-scale layoffs, Dell cut more than 5,000 jobs in Austin after the high-tech bust in 2001.
