Windows Want to be able to access your machine anytime, anywhere? Can't be bothered purchasing a domain name and configuring Dynamic DNS? Microsoft has a solution: the 'Windows Internet Computer Name' - a unique domain name for your computer. There is one small catch though: you have to be using the next-generation networking protocol IPv6 which, although thoroughly integrated into Windows Vista, isn't supported by most home routers yet.

Sweeet, so we have a feature that the majority of the world can't use, because their routers don't support IPV6, let alone everyone else that uses it.

It's got to start some where. (not to say that this is only the start) Later on, when ISPs and routers begin supporting IPV6, it will already be in most people's OS. Maybe this will even push the change forward a bit, as people begin seeing more use for IPV6.
