Nit-picking a bit, NTFS is case-preserving but case-insensitive.
That is, given the right tools, it is actually possible to rename "foo"
to "fOO", and the name will be stored as "fOO" (no case conversion is
done).  But yes, when matching a file name against the entries
of the directory it's located in, NTFS performs case-insensitive

AFAIK, HFS on Mac OS X exhibits the same behaviour.
