"Since then, Chromebooks have carved out a solid chunk of market share for the operating system. Around 50 per cent of US schoolchildren use Chromebooks in the classroom and Chrome OS is now the second most popular operating system in the country."

In other words, (a modified Gentoo) Linux is doing rather well in the classroom and it's beaten macOS into third place in the USA.

Regarding the Samsung Chromebook, I'd personally suggest going for something like the robust and cheaper Asus C202SA Chromebook instead (£180+).
