Coding? Fine... But FFS teach them Linux first

I've encountered too many adults who think first to solve a problem using whatever language (hammer?) they've just learned, when a shell script, and the tools that come with Linux/UNIX (awk, grep, sed and many, many more) can get from a to b far more quickly. Give em a good grounding in the OS. It's the IT equivalent of teaching a man to fish.
