Antoine, antique Turbo Pascal 7.0 (for DOS!) [1] is widely used for education in xUSSR countries. Due to a bug [2] in the crt unit most education examples can't be ran on computers with modern processors (Pentium MMX and newer) and are ran under DosBox [3].

School teachers often are very conservative. The use of something for education doesn't means that it is used for other purposes.
