And overwhelmingly, most folks will use keyboards at work or home, unless
they have an office with a door they can shut. As I've been saying for 20
or more years, voice computing will never come in: e.g., the employee
who's just been fired, walks out of the office and yells, FORMAT c:; YES,

And no one's going to want to have to have employees wasting time training
a voice recognition system to only recognize their voice.
