Atari Go

Does anyone have an opinion on whether it's good to learn "Atari Go" aka "Capture Go" before regular Go?  "Atari Go" is a version of Go in which the first player to capture, or the first to capture X number of stones, wins.  Apparently some have criticized it for overemphasizing captures and thus teaching bad habits.  I feel like I developed bad habits with Arimaa early on, and I don't want to repeat that with Go.

I've pretty much decided that it's best just to learn regular Go.  But is it best to start with a 9*9 board, 13*13, or 19*19?  Also, can anyone recommend a program to play against?

Why dont you try Many Faces of Go?
 
I also think that 9x9 is better for learning, but the 13x13 is more fun.
 
Although I'm no reference in Go play.
 
I also got recommended by lightvector to KGS, which is a nice server for playing Go online, and with a nice community.
 
Cheers, PerkofBR
