If it doesn't cost the installers any more to do 98 vs Linux, why not poll the kids and their families and let them choose? List what each one

their system if they change their minds later?).

I am reluctant to sound condescending, but I think you are going to confuse and overwhelm the parents by presenting them with such a decision. Even those with limited computer experience would have trouble with concepts like text editor vs. office suite, web browser vs. email client, and so on. The kids will choose what they know, not what they need to know, that's why they are students.
