However it in no way could be described as habitable by even the toughest forms of life found here.

Even if that were true, what significance does that have? Why would we expect alien life to be adapted to an environment like ours? Seeing as we only have a sample size of one, we have absolutely no idea what conditions can support life, so it's pointless to impose limitations based on what we happen to like.
