Re: IPv6 news
As I know, BT and P2P (some apps), already are using IPv6 ;-) And in 6-12 months the new Vista will start replacing XP, with IPv6 enabled by default. If you observe what is happening with XP and IPv6 NOT enabled by default, you may guess what will happen and how many apps. developers will take it seriously.
