The IPv6 Transition

Thanks to osewalrus for the link to this wonderful Powerpoint slide deck on the subject of the IPv4-to-IPv6 transition. It is a fine, ruthless look at the current state of things, making three principle points:
  • IPv6 is going to happen;

  • It's going to be a pain in the ass, and moreso if people keep playing religious games;

  • Stop Playing Games And Deal With It.
It's long as slide decks go (55 slides), and quite technical (going over my head in a number of places), but the general gist is worth picking up if you're involved with the Internet-tech space...
