Voice Recognition in Vista shaing up nicely

Ever since Captain Kirk started talking to the "ship's computer"  voice recognition has kind of been a  "holy grail among computer users.  The ability to either dictate, or  better yet, command a computer using the human voice has had a very high "gee whiz" factor, to say nothing of productivity enhancement.
Windows Vista is delivering some really significant advancements to "voice reco," especially the ability to give the computer real world commands.  You have to check out this awesome video demonstration by Long Zheng if you're even remotely interested.  Microsoft has done some great work helping the computer do precisely what you're asking.  Long has an Australian accent and Vista rarely hesitates.
