"No, they have one, to keep Linux out of the classroom".

Well, they've already missed the boat in that respect (in the USA at least) because the most popular computer learning experience in schools is being provided by Chromebooks with their customised Gentoo Linux Chrome OS and they outsell Windows laptops and Apple iPads combined.

Regarding Rasperry Pis, they've left things so late (bit of a Redmond trait there) that Windows on Pi will just be a minor curiosity only.
