Now I know this is a devils advocate comment. I understand the DOZE works out of the box.

DOZE works out of the box because it comes pre-installed on hardware
carefully selected to work.  Subsequently, every organization running
it needs an army of helpdesk people to maintain it.  Since those
people are already in place they may not be noticed, but if you
can track down the budget figures you can find them and their impact.

modified by a local group for a school board. Then you GHOST/IMAGE the whole lab with that functionality. So yes say a solution like FEDORA may not be out of the box, but My system now does everything listed above.

Even better, load k12ltsp (fedora plus what it takes to work out of
the box) on one or a few servers and network boot all the desktop
boxes which then obviously need no software maintenance and can either
be new tiny low-power boxes or about any old PC that you already
have around.
