Because I often miss some (or all) of a discussion I wasn't going to
weigh in.  However, I am also inclined towards "environment" being a
more generally understood and inviting word.  "Platform" means
something to techies -- often a combination of architecture and OS,
and I suppose desktop manager, on which applications run.  (It means
something else entirely to political wonks.)  "Environment,"
especially for something that is "an education project, not a laptop
project" seems a better fit wherever possible.
