The problem though, in my view, is that it is on fourms like
edu-sig ( and debian edu list) that the exploration of these kinds
of "polemics" are both most relevant and least welcome.

Which says something in-and-of-itself.

The Free Software movement being a particular kind of "threat", in that 
the tendency to provoke overconsumption is only enhanced by 
an offering that is free. 

Though - (god I hope I got this right) - the folks leading the debian
education distribution effort did somewhat belatedly reveal that they
are working from a business model based on support of the
distribution in school systems.
