v6 is a perfectly fine protocol. It just lacked hardware and the pressure of actually being scarce on resources. I don't think anyone thought it would take 25 years to hit 50% adoption but now that we are getting close to that point it doesn't really make sense to swap again for something that's not supposed to solve any more problems.

It's a perfectly fine protocol for 25 years ago; juust before mobile devices with cellular data connections, on-the-fly connection switching, IoT, wifi, roaming, extenders, mesh networking. https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=20167686
