Hi Alberto,
Im not saying these problems cant be worked around, just that with 
windowed, its easier for newbe's and theres the added advantage people 
dont need to mess with nvidia-settings, or go around writing wrapper 
scripts so blender runs in a window by default.

Heres a small patch that makes linux work like win32.

blender -W
# will run fullscreen
