    I would find that extremely distracting. I'm also the guy that doesn't jump up to answer a phone call, just because the phone is ringing though. I'm just not the target demographic.

    Yes I'm using it but it's buggy. Sometimes I have to say Hey Cortana many times before it responds nd I'm using a 950XL.

    Would use it way more if it was called Marvin and if I could change the voice style to sound more depressed. Why wasn't this done from the outset? Was it not obviously the way to go?

    Pro Tip: Use a good cardioid mic to talk to it and you'll get a much better result than through your webcam or whatever. No need to go overboard, but having at least a Blue Snowball on there will make a huge difference to false triggers and poor interpretation especially when providing dictation. Well worth it.

    Plus, if you get a 'brushed aluminium' Blue Snowball, it'll look like a deathstar. Who wouldn't want that?

    I tried using it, and it just never really worked properly.
    But most of all I really don't want to talk to my computer when I'm perfectly capable of doing tasks myself correctly the first time and don't have to repeat multiple times to get it to understand me.

    Unless you have a particularly unclear voice, this is almost certainly down to your mic quality. A step up from the little webcam (or equivalent) mics that most people seem to try to use would make the world of difference.

    So....are there people out there that DO use that on a PC? If not, why not?
    I use it. I guess it depends on how someone uses his/her computer, but for me, when I'm in my room, my laptop is on and unlocked all the time, and I use it to set reminders and appointments and to ask it quick questions (like during the Rio Olympics, I always asked Cortana what the USA medal count was). I find Cortana on my almost-always-on computer to be even more convenient than picking up and unlocking my phone to do this kind of stuff, especially when I'm not sitting in front of my computer. I know it sounds kinda gimmicky, but man it's fast and convenient.
