Sometimes the Desktop.ini not work properly in UNIX systems. We have to add a lowercase desktop.ini ref.

Windows ignore fix #35

Markus Olsson

Help me understand the scenario here. Why would a desktop.ini ever be created on a unix system? If it's already in the repository it'd be too late for a gitignore. Are you working in a Windows VM and committing from Unix or something?

This has been up once before (#592) and we closed it then but if you have a solid scenario I'm not opposed to accepting it. Could you please update it to use [Dd]esktop.ini instead though?

I'm also not averse to this if there is a motivating reason, but it does seem pretty unintuitive. Since there's no movement, I'll close it for now.
