Ars Technica on IPv4 exhaustion

Doesn't surprise me at all. Another thing I've seen lately is number of software (especially system management software) after being certified/tested with IPv6 no longer function when IPv6 is enabled. At least one vendor that broke IPv6 with a recent patch told me they only tested it once for IPv6 compatibility to get the marketing folks off their neck. After that, they no longer test with IPv6 since they don't have IPv6 internally.
