"Programmers can't get IPv6 thus that is why they do not have IPv6 in their applications"....

> ps. I work for a division of my employer that does not yet have IPv6 support in its rather popular consumer software product. Demand for IPv6 from our rather large customer base is, at present, essentially nonexistent, and other things would be way above it in the stack-ranked backlog(s) anyway. One could argue that until we add IPv6 support throughout our systems, consumers will continue to demand IPv4 connectivity from operators in order to run software like ours, rather than us being cut off from any meaningful proportion of customers.

Yes, but unlike Skype, most popular applications have competitors and whichever competitor provides the better user experience will cut the others off from a meaningful proportion of their customers.
