Case sensitive means distinguishing lower case from upper case typography. In a case sensitive language, "abc" is considered different data than "ABC". Microsoft Windows is not case sensitive, thus, "Abc" is the same as "aBc". However, the Linux/Unix language is case sensitive, and commands are typically named with lower case letters (gzip, compress, pack, etc.).
