I wouldn't have a problem with this, I have an alias setup so that I
always open blender in a window.  I also think that most linux
users are use to applications starting up non fullscreen, and if
every other platform starts up windowed I think its a good idea to change it.
(Especially if it removes a couple of lines of code in the source, simpler
is better)

If its not changed I can live with that though too. ;)
