As far as operating systems go, I have no idea. It depends on what you consider an "operating system". The possibilities are numerous.

The first computers were analog and computers made with intricate gear systems by the Greeks. These computers turned out to be too delicate for the technological capabilities of the time and were abandoned as impractical.

The first practical computers were made by the Inca using ropes and pulleys. Knots in the ropes served the purpose of binary digits. The Inca had several of these computers and used them for tax and government records. In addition to keeping track of taxes, the Inca computers held data bases on all of the resources of the Inca empire, allowing for efficient allocation of resources in response to local disasters (storms, drought, earthquakes, etc.). Spanish soldiers acting on orders of Roman Catholic priests destroyed all but one of the Inca computers in the mistaken belief that any device that could give accurate information about distant conditions must be a divination device powered by the Christian “Devil”.

the first OS as in the definition of operating system. Operating software - system software implimented in order to make use of the hardware, the beginning versions were to smooth the transitions between jobs in the first generation of computers, the 1950's it was to clear out registers and memory so far none of yall are close except for one thats in the right area may even be right but who developed it. it wasnt IBM

Its not subjective in the true meaning of what an operating system is defined as, but if you want to change what you deem an operating system as then it becomes subjective.

the first o.s. was developed by GM

The first operating system was designed by General Motors for the IBM 701. It was called Input/Output System, and consisted of a small set of code that provided a common set of procedures to be used to access the input and output devices. It also allowed each program to access the code when finished and accepted and loaded the next program. However, there was a need to improve the sharing of programs, which led to the development of the SOS (Share operating system), in 1959. The SOS provided buffer management and supervision for I/O devices as well as support for programming in assembly language. Around the same time as SOS was being developed, the first operating system to support programming in a high?level language was achieved. FMS (Fortran Monitoring System) incorporated a translator for IBM's FORTRAN language, which was widely used as most programs where written in this language.
