All lowercase is very popular in the *nix world and everyone knows all the best perl hackers use *nix ;)

    Most Unixes used to assume that if you used uppercase characters for your username that you were on an uppercase only terminal.

    Checking with Linux, if I use all uppercase for the username it assumes that my terminal is uppercase only. If I start with uppercase then go to lowercase it assumes a mixed case terminal.

    However, it's still a case of why bother with the shift key?
