Good point, lets wait for the ISP's to run out of IPv4 addresses and suddenly start mandating that people's homes be IPv6 ready out of the blue.
Not my point, just not trying to write a dissertation here. My point is the provider's of web based services need to get on IPv6 dual stack, until a large number of these providers offer their services natively through IPv6 we will have a huge scalability problem with translation. Until that happens consumers do not *need* IPv6. It's a pretty massive investment to replace the consumer footprint especially with consumers not exactly happy to pay a premium, businesses will do it because they are willing to make an investment to reach the broadest number of users.
Option 4- ISP's continue to upgrade their backbone and edge to support IPv6 and sell the service to business customers to cover the costs while rolling it out in consumer markets as the opportunities arise or the need is highest.
Hey asshole, lets not turn this into the drudgereport.
Hey Spoogestain! I got nothin, just figured if we were going to start name calling I'd get my $.02 in.
