That big database server on that big Sun E10K is
not going to be doing stuff over IPv6 until you upgrade to Solaris 8,
and drag Oracle along kicking and screaming.
Actually the real problem is the Oracle's of the world.
And let's be
honest here -
at the low end, if you're a Microsoft user, unless you're technically
skilled enough to install the developer toolkit and roll your own,
you're not doing IPv6 until you upgrade to Windows XP - which means
you also get to buy a Norton upgrade, a this upgrade, a that upgrade.
Even installing XP gets you nothing without the applications making the
appropriate API calls. The real requirement is in the other order; when
a desireable app becomes available that works over IPv6 but fails over
NAT. This will cause people to upgrade their OS to Solaris 8, or XP,
etc. This is more likely to be a peer-to-peer game than any business
