IPv6 is built into the latest versions of Microsoft Windows and Linux-based operating systems. It's expected to replace the current IPv4 and solve its numerous problems, such as address exhaustion, security, and mobility. However, implementing IPv6 will have drawbacks, such as lower bandwidth, so it's important to determine which modern operating systems will give the best bandwidth performance over IPv6 networks.
