Many articles state that IPv4 exhaustion will probably take place somewhere around 2010.

Microsoft says Windows XP is IPv6 compatible. Will this affect the ability of Windows 2000 and older operating systems to connect to the internet? High speed, LAN, dial-up, etc. Would all current equipment such as routers and modems become instantly obsolete? Many companies run decades-old technology.

I know high-speed has been named a a major contributor to the problem because of static IP address, whereas a dial-up connection would recycle IP addresses.

Would anything change about websites?

I wouldn't worry about instant obsolescence. There are IPv4 to IPv6 gateways that could be used as part of an interrim step. I expect to see a gradual transition process.
