Re: Why is IPv6 faster?

Ask yourself this. Who still uses old connectivity such as RS485 / RS232, X21, X25, Arcnet, Token Ring, IPX, etc. etc. They are all largely dead technologies. The world moved on, embrace the change.

I do. So what? There is nothing wrong with using old tried and tested technologies. It's great world moves on, but change for change's sake is silly and not always practical.
