Basically, a minimal PC that you would plug into all the I/O hardware, so that you could bring it anywhere, plug it into someone else's hardware, always have all your files and programs there.

This is what I want in my phone (in addition, or course, to the phone actually working as a phone)

Personally, as someone who doesn't have the latest and greatest in terms of CPU horsepower in my desktop PC, I like the idea of a lightweight desktop, and my current favorite in this regard is LXDE. I'm hopeful regarding LXQt but I'm not holding my breath. My ideal DE would use the same toolkit as the graphical apps I use (file manager, web browser, IM client, terminal, text editor, word processor, spreadsheet, graphical ftp client, image editor, image viewer, package manager, pdf viewer, media player, CD/DVD burner), but not bring in a whole lot of extra crap I don't want. Mixing Gtk2 and Gtk3 apps is as bad as mixing Gtk and Qt as far as I'm concerned.

I have to agree. I, personally, would not trust parents (as a group) with the job of approving education curricula or methodologies without some type of appropriate outcomes measurements (i.e., standardized tests). Given the backlashes to both No Child Left Behind and Common Core (not to imply that either program is the be-all, end-all it claims to be), and the difficulty in finding one or more enlightened despots to determine appropriate standards, I'm at a loss here.
