The ideal solution would be for schools to have a variety of platforms at their disposal. I would think that it would be a logistical nightmare to keep several separate networks running in parallel, but have any schools done this on a large scale with an even proportion of, say, three platforms? I certainly know of a few which run both Windows and Mac networks, with an relatively even split of computers to each network.

Although RISC OS is an excellent system to work with, and even better to learn computing on, you could argue that schools running solely on RISC OS are also guilty of not teaching children to be adaptable.
