Install the OS you need and install that on whatever hardware you got
and/or want.

Ehm what kind of weird statement is that?
What is so peeping difficult at reading documents to configure stuff?
One doesn't even have to for both OS's (ipv6 install and rtsold
<interface> :)
Calling the Windows IPv6 stack is really odd as it's a fine nice working
seperate IPv6 stack independent of the IPv4 one. It all works very well.
Could you also explain the "iodiosyncracies" whatever that may be??
And what is the hacking involved in there? Every stack has their
and without them it wouldn't be fun now would it ?

Indeed _regardless_ of OS, and why the peep can't he use Windows for
It works perfectly well as one, even though some people prefer this and
people prefer that. Also IMHO I think the 'process' part for learning a
complete UNIX
system is much higher than learning Windows, which is mostly the reason
people use Windows. Lower learning curve or 'process' as you like to
call it.

You didn't read/see Lord Of The Rings yet I assume:

One protocol to bind them all,
multiple program's to use it all,
multiple OS'es to run it all"

Ah well it at least looks a bit like that one thingy :)
Translated into english: Use what you want wherever you want when and
whereever you need it.
