    Linux has a Case Sensitive file system and windows does not.

    It's not that easy, NTFS is case sensitive, but the API often ignores case.

      Let me explain, NTFS has always had the capability to support a case sensitive file system, but by default the registry setting in windows is always none case sensitive.

      By changing the setting to case sensitive you will run into a large amount of problems where programs cant find files, shortcut links don't work, after updates the registry defaults back to none case sensitive and this will always happen when updating .NET.

      So back to reality my answer of "Linux has a Case Sensitive file system and windows does not." is in fact true and if you look at that in the reverse try to turn Linux to a none case sensitive file system, then most will say to themselves "Why would you want to do that anyway?"

      Linux chooses to be case sensitive and Windows does not.
