I am new to Cygwin. I noticed that the $USER environment variable has my
username in upper-case. So it is "DSMILEY".
As David said, that's because you created your username in ALL UPPERCASE
when setting up the user on Windows.
The only way to "fix" this for you would be to rename your Windows user
to have a lower-case name. (If windows allows that operation..)
