I´m not sure about that. I´ve introduced a lot of people to Linux and
no one said: I love case-insensitive names!!! Yuuupiii!!! Now I can
have Makefile and makefile on the same dir!!!

It´s also a nightmare to find filenames. Some files have qt on the
middle of the name, others have Qt. There are tons of other examples.

Also, when I talk to experienced unix users they all say to me:
Please, put all your files and directories on lowercase and please
never use spaces. You are asking for trouble.
