It seems like people get pride off telling people to "go search the forums" on the forums. If people did not post that they wanted a feature, the one post that was made would fade away...
I think that the idea of IPv6 has not been fully discussed on this forum. Rather the regulars here have simply dismissed the new feature as useless and unneeded, saying it would take too much time to implement or would simply be too hard as so many said about a multi-sever mirc.
Why implement IPv6? Because it is the new standard. Do you think that if everyone looked at PCI and went "Yea... PCI is better, but we already use ISA and it should be good enough. Someone else will make a motherboard with its support, so forget it" you would be crusing along with a 133KiB/s bandwidth isntead of the cripling support ISA offered? Of course not.
A very large majority of people use Windows XP and through Windows XP you can install IPv6 capability with a simple "ipv6 install" command at the command prompt. No restart, no wait.
I will quote right from an article about IPv6: "From a software developer's perspective, basic IPv6 support is relatively easy. Most applications interface to a TCP/IP protocol stack via a socket interface. IPv6 will have a different socket library, and a dual-stack implementation will contain both the IPv4 and IPv6 socket libraries. "
There is clearly support for IPv6, but a lack of functionality in people's main client. Why try to stifle the progression of it by trying to shun the technology. I hope that every person that wants IPv6 support here makes a new topic to show the support for the protocol.
