The person quoted in the article is saying the same as the 
above.  Most people will read the simplistic version of the above 
instead of the benefits of having a larger address space.

Let's say that you are going to spend EUR 100,000 on network 
equipment.  You only need IPv4 for your network as that is what your 
users require.  You get that equipment instead of spending more money 
for network equipment which is IPv6 compliant.

It is plain and simple; you don't have to keep the Internet 
running.  It's your money and your network.  You get to do what you want.
