Has anybody seen an IPv6 rollout where every user is switched to the new protocol? University networks, corporate, someone else's house, coffee house? What was the experience like hooking up to such net? Is it advertised to the user that it is a "Good Thing" (TM)?

No.

IP6 is the bastard son of the Tooth Fairy and the Easter Bunny.

I've seen it cause issues with SBS 2008... apart from that, I'll stick with IPv4 thanks.

More importantly, would you pay a person to convert your home network to IPv6, if that means that each of your Windows, Linux and OSX computer could act as a file server that you can access from outside your house, with no VPN or third party app? If it means that you can have www servers on fixed IPs without even bothering your ISP? If you can have videochat with another IPv6 user without starting an AOL account? If you got the pamphlet-sized guide to growing your IPv6 network?
