Some experts disagree with Mockapetris and believe this might be a FUD campaign to stir up support for Nomium, a vendor of DNS products were Mockapetris works as chief scientist. Microsoft has said that while vista may cause an increase in DNS traffic it won’t be to the extent that it cripples the DNS system.
The problem lies in the way that Vista utilizes the IP stack, according to Mockapetris "[Windows Vista] is going to try a DNS lookup for the IPv6 address and then a DNS lookup for the IPv4 address," this uses more of the DNS system and until supply is increased thing might get slower.
