They entire miss the point; an introductory language must also teach computer concepts. I believe procedural C++ is a better approach, though having a class which covers computer concepts well could be sufficient.

(I saw this with my youngest son; his introductory programming course at college used C#, but dove straight in without covering many of the basics. He switched to a different introductory course which spent half the semester just teaching basic concepts, such as memory, bytes, bits and all that stuff and only then started with C#.)
