"BBC and RISC OS produce adaptable, computer literate pupils."

This is where political expediency and financial issues impinge on sound educational reasons. Educating children to be adaptable with a problem solving approach by exposing them to a variety of systems is sound education. Narrow, platform compliance driven agendas is anything but. Particularly when the "everyone has Windoze" argument is used to justify narrowing and weakening educational objectives.
