No it doesn't. It actually helps in that respect. 
I have seen, from my own eyes, Windows developer who would copy/paste the class
name (e.g. QLineEdit) after #include<   and who would then add ".h>" to it.
Yes, they ended up with #include <QLineEdit.h>, and it compiled just fine for them,
so why would they bother rewriting it lowercase?
Being able to do #include <QLineEdit> is actually a *great* help for windows-to-linux
