Yes, it's a Microsoftism, and causes many problems.

Unfortunately, they seem pretty keen about it (I guess they just don't
care about the effect on non-MS software), and there's MS software out
there (VSxxx Japanese edition, at least) that _forces_ you to use a
BOM if you want to use UTF-8. As you can imagine, this makes writing
portable source code a bit miserable...

It shouldn't cause problems. Both GCC (Since 4.4) and Clang will act on a UTF-8 BOM appropriately.
