When did linux become caseless?

Subject says it all really. Just did "rm [A-Z]*" and had a load of files 
   with lower case first letters removed as well. Same thing happens for 
"ls -d [A-Z]*"

I am guessing that this some bash argument expansion option. Any ideas 
as to how to get the correct behaviour?

Using Ubuntu.
