This really isn't the forum for this question.
There's another answer out there already that I would could be
simplified that IPv6 is just 96 more bits in address space. A lot of
the innovations introduced for IPv6 have already been rolled back
into IPv4 (like IPSEC), and there are band-aids like NAT that
alleviate other shortcomings.
IPv4 won't allow the Internet to grow to a global scale. (Contrary
to reports, the Internet still has a lot of growth left.) IPv6
removes the address depletion factor.
OTOH, whether IPv6 is still the answer (it was selected to replace
IPv4 about 10 years ago) is something I question. Route table
capacity issues dog the technology and are the primary reason holding
So far, the dancing KAME turtle has been the only thing available on
IPv6 that is not available on IPv4. If a dancing turtle couldn't
make IPv6 popular, what can?
