Why?  Is it causing a problem for you?

IPv6 deployment is a chicken-and-egg problem.  Everything Fedora can
do to be proactive about encouraging its use should be applauded.  One
day we will eventually need it, and if we don't work out the wrinkles
now, we'll be in trouble later.  Windows Vista has it enabled by
default.  So should Fedora.

I use ipv6 daily. why should i go through extra steps when having both enabled does not hurt people with ipv4 only connections?


Why should it be turned on for you and the few others that are using it?
