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.

    you know, if you need a device to be universally find-able on the internet and you don't want to spend money for a fixed IP4 address and/or a domain name then by all means give your device a IPv6 address (*)...

    some of use don't have the time to help you collapse the wave function that is IPv6, so go learn how to use a stick on monkey island without bothering us leechers ...

    (*)good and bad can find it?
