Your "always" doesn't go far back enough. It's capitalized in VS2005, and I
have no earlier versions here to check, but my memory tells me that there
was a time it wasn't. Borland 5.5.1 doesn't capitalize it, and windowsx.h is
not capitalized in the Platform SDK. Plus, all Windows programming examples
and books I remember used #include <windows.h>, without capitalization.
