Submission + - IPv6 day: June 6. What's new this year? Leave it on. (arstechnica.com)

uigrad_2000 writes: Last year's IPv6 day was extremely successful, in that there were only a few reported cases of surprises, many that resolved themselves after the first hour. So why did participating companies go back to their old ways after the day was completed?

This year, the plan is to make it "IPv6 launch day". Time Warner and Comcast promise to have have 1% of their customers on IPv6 by launch day this time. Many of the large websites that registered IPv6 addresses for just one day plan to keep them permanent this year. After 20 years of planning, it looks like it is finally going to happen!
