    For new computer users, Mac O/S is much easier to learn n pick up rather than WIn thou. But some ppl prefer Win due to compatibility. But for kids, MAc O/S is much more interactive to the eye and easier to operate esp new users to computers

    How about teaching deeper, general principles to build a foundation instead of skin-deep "knowledge" of a specific product which may be outdated tomorrow?

    DOS :besmile:

    then teach him/her BASIC programming or pascal

    A strong foundation for him/her to go far in future...

    I would teach him stunts like flying to the rooftop like what we see in Kung Fu movies.

    If he can't fight at least he knows how to escape.

    Linux since he/she is bound to pick up windows or mac OS on his/her own lah
