actually, Arstechnica just recently did a poll of their readers since there are very strong rumors that Siri is being added to OS X... now, Ars has a very specific population demographic so it really can't be extrapolated to the general population, but it does have a lot of Apple fans.
52% of you said you would use Siri or at least give it a shot if it were to appear in a future version of OS X.
About 9% of you said you were unsure (don't worry, Siri can't bite you),
while just over 10% of you said you wouldn't use Siri on OS X due to your bad experiences on iOS.
Almost a third—about 27.6%—said you're just plain not the type to want to speak to your computer.
here was one of the posts to the article which just happened to mention the Kinect: "But maybe Siri could be used to apply to other things, like Ryoshi's suggestion: "Forget computers, I want something like Siri for my entertainment setup. Kinect seems to be close to what I want, but I don't really want to buy an Xbox 360 for a single peripheral."
