A Swiss VM hosting provider has a technical blog post about how to kill IPv4 completely on FreeBSD. That is to say, turning it completely off, not just preferring IPv6. They then solicit concrete solutions describing, along with a proof of concept, how to turn IPv4 completely off in other operating systems and allowing them to communicate with IPv6 only.

    Current OS devs are neglecting their duty to prevent their systems being used to do evil, how long will we let them get away with not moderating the use of their service? An OS dev community which permits indiscriminate use of their OS is no different to bluecoat selling equipment indiscriminately.

    Geez, Louise! We already have the evil bit [ietf.org]. What more do you want?*

    *Your in[s]anity doesn't deserve a serious response. So this is what you get.
