Do most test centres have digital timers? That would be a huge incentive to sit at the front (and arrive extra early)

On my first testing, I sat next to a window with blinds. Someone requested that the blinds be opened (WHY?!). After a while, I had streams of sunlight coming through the blinds and making it difficult to read my booklet. I had to raise my hand and request that they be closed.
Just don't bother with window seats, not worth it.
I would probably sit near the front. Seems a little less claustrophobic to me to have nothing in front of you, instead of a row of people.

I would say that perhaps sitting in front of the window in daytime would be better than right under fluorescent light. I live in NYC, so I doubt the weather in Dec will permit either an open window or sunshine.
