Default Question on Figure 2-3


The explanation of Figure 2-3 says this.

with PID 0, and two processes with PIDs 2 and 3, respectively.
But, although the explanation says that there is a task with PID 0, Figure 2-3 doesn't show a PID 0, but shows a task with PID 1 instead.
Why is that? Someone please clarify.

Thanks in advance.
