No. Maybe I was not clear. If you use case sensitive hfs+ formatted
disk (or UFS I guess) the file system does support case differences.

If you want to try by yourself you don´t have to reformat a whole
harddisk. Instead you can just create a disk image using Disk
Utility.app and reformat to "Mac OS Extended (Case-sensitive)".
