Linux Foundation Workgroup Tackles Federal Mandate for Next-Generation Internet Protocol. It seems there were parts of (some) Linux distributions not IPv6 compliant enough for the US DoD (Department of Defense) mandate, and now they are. Good news for Linux implementations. Modern microsoft implementations (XP, Vista) will be at the same level.

Good news for IPv6 mainly: the department of defense is a serious buyer of network hardware and software. Mandating IPv6 compliance for everything means hardware producers and software producers get a big push to implement and actually test IPv6.

Somehow the style of the announcement and the list of vendor names reminds me of the whole y2k craze.
