Interesting question...I think a lot has to to with your hands (obviously) - some people just finger the notes with stretched hands while others use curvy fingers. (Just as some barely lift the fingers off the holes while others virtually "let go" of the instrument in such cases).

If you have flat finger tips, you're probably more comfortable with straight fingers. I have round finger tips and curve my fingers.

I don't think there's a definitive answer. Whatever rocks your boat, or whatever makes you make less mistakes would be the diplomatic answer...
