That's a very interesting video, that I hadn't seen yet :)

but it only reinforces the need for basic computer skills, it shows the

Sure.  I agree with you that pupils should be able to cope with different
desktops as they should with say different textbooks.  But I do not think
that exchanging a textbook in the middle of the year is a good idea and
thus I think sticking to something you are used to is not really a bad idea.
You just become distracted by unimportant things like different optics,
different shortcuts etc.  The fact that you should be able to cope with
different desktops does not mean that it makes sense to switch your working
environment frequently.

Kind regards
