I think we pretty much all know by now: The Internet was a mistake. No need to keep it alive.

No, only IPv6 was.

We'll just run into trouble again with the Internet of Nanobots. Treat it like windows and skip every other version

Did you mean the Internet-of-pwned-Things?

You've been reading too many Philip K. Dick stories, Joe Chip.

If you want full IPv6 coverage don't single home with HE or Cogent (HE was linked from one of the excuses)

netflix is telling people on ipv6 to disable it in order to use their service because content providers are stupid

amazing :( we had to disable IPv6 at work because of StackOverflow CDNs hanging :-/

still have it enabled at home (we were trialling it for Sky) but we did have issues with hanging DNS for 4sec before fallback!

problem is, 99.9999% of people have the IPs they need so IPv6 is just a big hassle with few advantages :(
