I am usually just lurk around here but I had to say something. Working
for a service provider that has tried to make an entire product around
IPV6 it does not work. Since none of the big players (google, yahoo,
etc...) have started to atleast provide some IPV6 content the little
guys are not going to jump on the bandwagon.

  Yes it's the chicken or the egg thing but its economics not logic that
will get people to move to IPV6.
