Correct. The problem is with Exchange, which doesn't support it yet, and
that is the setup that most businesses use. Apparently Exchange Server
2008 SP1 will support it, if I recall that correctly.

do IPv6, but that the infrastructure at servers is simply not ready yet.
Folks like Google, Youtube, Facebook and so on should really start to
move into that direction, I hope they do it soon.
