All those things should be learned NOW by students if they want to get jobs in IT or programming Windows in the future...
Yeah, I can see how Windows 7 would be a benefit for an IT Tech. But, I don't necessarily agree that "all those things should be learned NOW by the students". I think the curriculum should focus on the necessities (math, literature, music, etc), and let the student decide later if he wants to pursue a career in IT.
