 > Why would you start numbering a list with a zero?

 Because the FSF defines the four freedoms that constitute free software as
 "freedom 0" through "freedom 3", see [http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/free-
 sw.html "What is free software?"]. I assume it starts at 0 because that's
 where computers start counting from, e.g. the first index of an array in
 most languages is 0.
