Nope, the cast on is the cast on. R1 is what happens next.

No, the cast on is never counted as a row.

Really? I remember reading somewhere that the long-tail cast-on creates a knitted row so the next row is actually row two.

(I've noticed that knitting on and the cable cast-on act differently from long-tail, so I'm not saying that it applies here. I'm just surprised by the "never" in your statement.)

I guess I heard wrong.

I would say unless a pattern specifically calls the cast on the 1st row, I would never call a cast on row 1.

Yes, you wouldn't count the CO as a row, no matter which one. You knit on the knitted CO, but no one counts that as a row. I know many instructions for the LT say that you've `knitted' your first row, but it only looks like that until you've done a few rows. Then the knit row look sort of disappears and it's not the same size as a regular row anyway. Some knitters do start with a WS row if they do the LT CO, but most just start with the RS row the way a pattern is written.
