I guess you're all missing the point here. I've never agreed too much
with M$, but what they're doing is right. IPv6 stacks are quite mature
these days but IPv6 connectivity can be broken due to incorrectly
implemented networks / tunnels (see:
For those clients there is no option other than disabling IPv6.
Hopefully the service providers & network admins get to identify and
fix issues. This problem is not client OS specific. I'm all for M$
bashing, but not for this reason.
