Some text editors start with no document open, as you suggest. Some others
start with a new document open (sometimes named "new.txt") in a text mode.

Personally, I usually start Emacs with Dired. That too might be a
possibility: start in `~/'. That gives users flexibility in terms of opening
existing files or new ones, and they can see what files are available.
Another possibility is to have an explicit option for the startup directory
(default `~/'). Just a thought.
