This is logical.

You are using a programming language that was designed on a Unix system
(well... sort of. Unix-ish, this is blurred by the mists of history).
Python is shipped as a standard component in all operating systems of the
Unix family: Unix, Linux, BSD, Solaris, MacOS,...
Unix-like operating systems have always been case sensitive, or at least
since the early seventies.

Python was invented in the early nineties.

It is only in the early zeroties that Python was ported to
case-insensitive operating systems like Windows.

I know case sensitivity is tricky for people who code in Visual Basic, but
for C coders it should come natural.
What is your language of choice?
