Sadly, this is the same generation with a school "computer science" curriculum comprising mostly of how to use MS Office

Maybe, but things are changing....

Indeed they are. A friend's son has just started GCSE CS (aged 14), and so far they're learning C and Ruby, and their most recent homework assignment was to describe the Von Neuman architecture in some detail. And they work in Linux (in a VM on the school's Windows platform, as far as I can make out).
