File Extension Question

I got into a discussion today about file management with a friend and saw that he’d been renaming all of his RAW files from the default .NEF (capitalized) to .nef (lowercase). He never thought twice about it, but we wondered if there are perhaps any secondary consequences to this that might show up down the road. Is one better than the other? Does it change they way programs read the file in any way?
