What happens when a Microsoft employee demos the speech recognition in Windows Vista before it's ready? Check it out for yourselves. It's not a pretty sight.

Our buddies at Jalopnik pointed us to the flakey Windows Vista voice recognition demo shown at a recent event. We tried to record it off of CNBC but our computers melted over the weekend, luckily not in the Dell way.

Update: Reader Guillermo tells us that the engineer who's "responsible" for the bug that caused the demo meltdown posted an update on his site.
