I don't know about that. I started on Apple Integer BASIC back in 1980, 
dropped to assembly on multiple platforms, and eventually ended up doing 
OO style design in Perl in the 90s *before* it officially had OO. I 
remember my sister commenting something to the effect that I seemed to 
design code mentally in OO styles regardless of the actual 
implementation language a decade or so ago.
