    I was also thinking of using Rainmeter and RocketDock to create a desktop a bit different as well. Anyone else using / doing this in an educational environment?

    It's actually quite straightforward and we have been offering dual boot to some staff for a number of years.
    Provided you get a long term release distro the management is quite painless.
    We even have some unlikely converts who use linuxes at home - completely non techie RS and English teacher, the head of ICT, and even our (non techie) SEN manager (whos son supports her at home) - as well as all the techs on site. Linux is fine for technical people who like a different challenge and for complete noobs - it's just the people in between that can't cope.
    Caveate - we use Google apps and LibreOffice on site.
