Maybe, just maybe...
if Ubuntu phone catches on with kids - they could [eventually] get
curious if they find it can run on their desktop pooters or tablets.
The councils / education authorities.... nah [says me of little faith in
councillors & education committees].

Main trouble - the kids don't care - perhaps if it were called Ubuntu
for Facebook or Ubuntu for Twitter, or Ubuntu for Impatient Kids ;)
