Yeah, you are. ;)

The server is always case-sensitive (and case-preserving), regardless of
the underlying filesystem.

Also, remember that not only Windows has the "problem". Some filesystems
used by MacOS also exhibit case-insensitive-yet-case-preserving behavior
(and many users consider it to be the most "user friendly" behavior).
