All applications that our kids use will only work on Windows. Office is the "standard" that they all get taught (yes, I've put OpenOffice on - without teachers wanting to use it, Office is the only thing used). The educational applications that they use every day will only run on Windows (and some maybe on OSX, but we're not rich enough to afford Macs, I'm afraid.)
Ahem. This UK school seems to be very satisfied with its all GNU/Linux set-up, which saved them enough money to take on a new ICT teacher.
