Who the hell needs 13 Gazillion addresses on their LAN? On the internet sure, ok....who the fuck going to connect a Windows box to the internet without NAT/Firewall?

Network address translation came into use because you had limited supply of IP addresses, pigeonhole problem basically. With IPv6 that's not needed, because surely 3.4×10^38 addresses should be enough for anyone. You'll just need a firewall to reject requests from outside your own assigned block.
