How do you define "the first time", exactly?

Users can use several different systems and/or user accounts.  Some of
them start a session and keep it running for long times, others start
very short sessions for specific jobs, then exit Emacs.  A user could
start Emacs for the first time in his/her life, or he/she could be a
veteran Emacs users with many customizations.  The definition of the
"first time" should reasonably support all of these use patterns, and
possibly others as well.
