You should stay within the original thread that was created to garnish good non-conflicting information. Your M$ mindset/traits must be changed if you wish to continue using GNU/Linux.
It does make perfect sense to have uniqueness by using case sensitivity for a filesystem. Unlike M$ which doesn't really care as to address for a lazy user base therefore restricting absolute control.
You could setup a .bashrc & .bash_profile for your user or yourself to expedite keyboard input;
~$ cat .bash_profile
-------File starts---- << do not include this line
# Source .bashrc
if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then
-------File ends---- << do not include this line
:~$ cat .bashrc
------File starts ---- << do not include this line
# Add bin to path
# Dynamic resizing
shopt -s checkwinsize
# Custom prompt
if [ `id -un` = root ]; then
# Add color
eval `dircolors -b`
# User defined aliases
alias clls='clear; ls'
alias ll='ls -l'
alias lsa='ls -A'
alias lsg='ls | grep'
alias lsp='ls -1 /var/log/packages/ > package-list'
alias web='links -g -download-dir ~/ www.google.com'
#To clean up and cover your tracks once you log off
#Depending on your version of BASH, you might have to use
# the other form of this command
trap "rm -f ~$LOGNAME/.bash_history" 0
#The older KSH-style form
# trap 0 rm -f ~$LOGNAME/.bash_history
----File ends---- << do not include this line
The .bashrc is very useful!
