IPv6 (23)

bumping the thread back into existence because it looks interesting, and I want to talk about it.

Ars Technica calculates that we'll be out of IPv4 addresses in less than 7.5 years (as of early 2007). So there's an estimate shorter than "about ten years". Japan already has widespread ipv6 deployment, and the US Government is requiring all agencies to support it by 2008.

Hoping to breathe life into the discussion: do you think that the transition to IPv6 can still be a smooth one, or do you think it's too late for that and it's going to resemble more of an avalanche?
