2) Numbering starts with zero, why?? “1” corresponds to the second
    entry and “0” which is all the way on the other side of the keyboard
    corresponds to the first entry. That's not really intuitive.

It's actually expected by data entry people, bookkeepers and accountants. People with complete keyboards can use the same hand for all number keys without needing to look at what they are doing, and the right index finger for 7,4,1,0, which are all in the same column, same as a standard size adding machine or calculator.

words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
