Windows 7/Microsoft Office
I grew up with Windows 7 with Microsoft Office (and Internet Explorer). I remember discovering the animations tab in PowerPoint and making stick figure animations. Microsoft Office was always there, and I learned how to use it from a very young age.
Note: You Suck at Excel with Joel Spolsky is the best resource to learn more about Excel in an hour.
