Re: far bigger
How many home users even touch their router that they're given by their provider?
If the provider enables IPv6 it's completely transparent to the end user.
Now that I understand IPv6, it's as easy for me to deal with as IPv4. Was there some things that I had to get used to? Sure. Is it an impossible mountain to climb, absolutely not.

They basically did.
When you understand standard subnetting like having a /64 as a minimum assignment, and having a /56 or /60 assigned to a home, and a /48 is assigned to a building, then everything starts falling into place pretty quickly.
The problem with people adopting IPv6 is that people think of it like IPv4. I've got my personal environments IPv6 enabled now, and it's made my life simpler.
I've just got to train the other network admins at my work and we'll start IPv6 enabling our core. There's no reason why we shouldn't do this that I can see.
