Windows Server Refresh vs Linux Server 302 Redirect

Description

Why is there a different way in which WordPress handles Windows Servers Vs. Linux Servers HTTP headers. On my Windows machines I get the following header for redirection:

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Refresh: 0;url=/wp-admin/options-misc.php?updated=true

On my Linux machines I get the following header for redirection:

HTTP/1.1 302
Location: /wp-admin/options-misc.php?updated=true

The reason I mention this is I get this unsightly flicker in my browser when the refresh is used but I get a very nice transition in my browser when the 302 redirect is used.

I also mention this because being a developer myself, I know that code consolidation makes debugging and upgrading much easier.
