Windows "Microsoft has pumped out voice recognition software for years, but the company has a curious aversion to publicizing the fact. With Windows 7, Microsoft's speech recognition has become a decent productivity tool and one that the company should be proud to proclaim as an OS feature. For the casual speech recognition user, nothing beats free - especially when one considers the $100+ price points for third-party software. But is it powerful enough for serious users?"

That reminds me of... what was it called again? Ah, yes: OS/2. ;)
Warp 4 had voice recognition built-in already back in 1996. That's quite an achievement I would say, if you imagine what the hardware (and its performance) was like some 14 years ago.
