The case sensitivity is because each table is stored as a file name. On UNIX/Linux systems the operating system access to files is cases sensitive. On Windows it is case insensitive as files are accessed with no case sensitivity. Mac OS X which is a UNIX like OS also is case insensitive.

Also if you look at the following system parameter lower_case_table_names, this can be set to determine the sensitivity of accesses to the underlying tables.
