Actually, some ISPs have seen the light and some consumer level equipment is now IPv6 capable. A friend of mine has a router, not sure if D-Link or Linksys, that can handle IPv6. Modern operating systems, including Linux, BSD, Mac and Windows have been IPv6 ready for years.

I'd strongly recommend people set up tunnels to IPv6 brokers in the mean time. I use Freenet6 from http://gogonet.gogo6.com. They have clients for Linux, Windows, Mac and BSD and can be configured for either a /56 subnet or a single address. There are other tunnel brokers available.

BTW, there is no charge for using that Freenet6 tunnel, but if you don't register, you're limited to a single address. If you register, you get a static address, DNS to that address and can configure for a subnet.
