According to Webster,


     (n) the deliberate and systematic destruction of a racial,
     political, or cultural group

One could easily class Windows users as a very broad, overlapping
cultural group. But remember that Windows isn't the only OS to
use case-insensitive filesystems by default. OS-X is case
insensitive by default, along with most variants of DOS, MacOS
classic, VMS (I believe), and even a few (non-Darwin) variants
of Unix.

I cannot agree with those who rank modesty among the virtues.  To the
logician all things should be seen exactly as they are, and to
underestimate one's self is as much a departure from truth as to
exaggerate one's own powers.
