"Experts keep screaming that the IPv4 sky is falling. Three such experts
were recently asked point-blank to state an irrefutable business case for
moving to IPv6 now, and their answer was more plausible than the old
refrain (the lack of addresses and a yet-to-be-seen killer IPv6 app). They
said that there isn't a business case. No company that is satisfied with
all of its Internet services will need to move, even in the next few
years. They also pointed out that Microsoft is a unique position in the
industry both causing and hindering adoption IPv6 causing through its IPv6
support in its OSes, and hindering by not extending IPv6 support into very
many of its apps."
