WE HEAR YOU We did tell you we wanted feedback. Here's our response.
Your response shows that you didn't hear. The beta is an experiment that has failed. Accept that and move on.
IPv6 is not a solution to this problem. If we allocate IPv6 addresses the way we have allocated IPv4 addresses, we'll run out of them in just a few more years. Then what? IPv8, with 1024-bit addresses, so we can start allocating entire
You don't realise how big a 128-bit address space is. As for a 1024-bit address space, why would every atom in the observable universe need over 10^200 IP addresses?
Or perhaps we should let the work stand for itself, evaluate the methodology, strip away the marketing spin, and come away with some nugget of truth, regardless of who funded it.
We can't evaluate the methodology because the methodology hasn't been published. From what we do know, neither the testing nor the data released was objective - the tests compared bleeding edge releases of IE9 to an obsolete versions of Chrome, and the data they chose to publicise focussed on the single areqa in which IE9 triumphed, despite it performing poorly in other areas.
