Another driver for v6?
According to http://www.nytimes.com/external/idg/2008/10/28/28idg-10-best-feature.html Windows 7 will have a cool feature called DirectAccess that "requires deploying IPv6 and IPsec". I know nothing more of this feature than is in the article, but if accurate it may create a client-centric demand for v6, i.e., desirable new functionality that isn't available on v4. Of course, Windows 7 will have to ship first, and then get deployed in the enterprise... --Steve Bellovin, http://www.cs.columbia.edu/~smb
