Meh, my bad, I forgot the difference between "Reply" and "Reply all". Re-sending it to the list as well, in case anyone else are interested.

I know that might be very different figures. Can I ask how bad the situation is, as you see it? Are there several implementations that claim to be edns0 "capable", but written by drunk chimps so flawed beyond ... pretty much anything that's good enough to be referred to as bad?

So basically, very few computers actually use edns0, since only enthusiasts will have taken the step to manually enable it. It will be a bit tricky for us (as a decently big ISP in Norway) to tell our customers to manually enable edns0.

Thanks for your reply, even if it wasn't telling me the world was perfect and everyone were already using edns0 (not your fault though).
