They're talking about the training costs and hardware replacement costs, shipping, cost of support from the developers, etc. etc. etc.
I know it doesn't sound "touchy feely" enough but you have to take these things into account. Somebody is going to have to pay the bills, period, or the project will collapse. You can't pretend money doesn't exist.
No child or education program was ever helped by poor planning.
Turning a blind eye to planning because you might not like the implications of a closer look is even worse - The person who does that does so because he believes the project is doomed - even if he doesn't know that's what he believes.
So is the project doomed, or can it stand the cold hard numbers?
