No, it's not. A lot of X window managers have the keyboard focus follow the mouse cursor automatically (that's in fact the classic behavior of the X Window System), which does not auto-raise windows necessarily. And yes, single click does still raise the window, but I don't see how that would matter if you can get keyboard focus without raising.

You can get the same behavior on MS Windows with the Tweak UI Power Toy. Just enable Mouse | X-Mouse | [x] Activation follows mouse (X-Mouse) and disable [ ] Autoraise when activating (you can also set a delay). I believe you can also do it by manually editing the registry, but Tweak UI is more comfortable.
