It's not capitalized in the 30 instances of '#include <windows.h>' in
Boost header files, including 3 from Boost.Test, and it's not
capitalized on my file system. It's also not capitalized on the
Wikipedia page, it's not /consistently/ capitalized by Microsoft
themselves, and even Microsoft are switching to lower case where
portability matters: see
