I'd rather have a window than not, obviously, but if the choice is room to stretch my legs and the ability to get up fairly easily vs. having a seat pressed up against my knees and having to wake people up and make them move if I need to go to the bathroom, I will always choose the former.
On most ultra long haul flights, there's not much to see for the majority of the flight anyway.
