I think, on a tty, Emacs ought not to display the splash screen if a
file argument was given to it.  Newbies will seldom use Emacs on a
character terminal anyway.

For a window system, I already suggested to pop the splash screen in a
separate frame, preferably smaller than the standard frame
dimensions.  Many GUI programs do that, so this won't come as a
surprise for newbies.
