This seems to me to be a red herring.  What does connectivity have to do
with your choice of OS?

The changes in the world "we" live in have driven down the costs (both
software and hardware) of building certain types of computing applications
and devices for learning.  If we chose wisely, we can take advantage of
these to offer "the rest" better, cheaper, and lower-power devices to enable
learning.  But you have to keep moving.
