Tony I think BYOD (bring your own device) is a great idea and shouldn't be
locked down to a particular device in schools. I personally used Mandrake
Linux on my laptop at school when the policy was windows only, (and got
away with it)
I think the goals being discussed were more school mandated and
administrated devices, and which device is best value for a school, which
is where most of my experience and input comes from, but I can't see any
harm discussing other goals as well.
