You are more likely to see IPv6 in "widespread" use in new technologies,
ie cellular phone type devices and similar.  It will be several years
before widespread ISP use in the US.  *BSD and Linux are IPv6 capable,
and others, but the consumers are Micro$loth based.  NT4 has an IPv6
addon to tunnel through IPv4, it can't even connect to a IPv6 network.

This is just how I see it happening.
