I don't see either Apple or Microsoft as being the hindrance. In fact, both
of them seem pretty ready, fsvo "ready". Unlike ISP's by and large. But I'm
pretty sure that both iPhones and Androids are pretty happy about being
in v6 land since I see them showing up in my logs all the time, for the few
providers that have lit up v6.

I'm all for bagging on those two, but it seems pretty unjustified here.

Er, uh, huh? v6 has been available forever on the usual suspect host operating
systems, and most server side apps don't need to do much to support lighting
v6 support up that I can think of.  I turned it on and it was pretty much a big
ho-hum, cool it works.
