His idea was to run IPv6 over IPv4 network - essentially run Windows programs on DOS. Can you say that "worked just fine"?
Why yes it did, it was called "Windows 95" then "Windows 98" and finally began breaking down with Windows Millenium. However it bought Microsoft enough time to migrate their application software to an operating system worthy of the name. Yes, Windows on DOS worked out very well indeed, unlike IPv6.
