As someone mentioned you should try Visual Basic (called mbas in Mono).

Also if you use an IDE with code completion like SharpDevelop it will 
find methods for you even if you type the wrong case.  So even a 
case-sensitive language is easier to use.

The boo programming language will likely have a case-insensitive option 
eventually too: http://boo.codehaus.org/  I have a patch for it now.
