Nope, different.
No EUI64 at all - goes straight to randomized IIDs, but (cough) not to be
confused with Temporary/Privacy IIDs.
Randomized Link-local, randomized non-link local (Site|UniqueLocal|Global).


FWIW - WinXP uses 24hours/change_in_prefix/reboot as the default criteria
for new Privacy IID creation, is that not aggressive enough?  
	I'd be curious to know what makes it "awful" IYO, I use it daily and
have few complaints ... ?

(I think the bigger / better complaint against WinXP is the lack of
IPv6-transport support for DNS ... and perhaps the lack of DHCPv6 client
functionality as well)
