I too am trying to build not only a voice command database that will accept an endlessly growing amount of commands I would program but I have become very interested in mapping out my home with X and Y mapping so the computer understands where you are at any given time.

The need for this comes when you provide a voice command the computer knows which speakers to route the response to along with which room is to be affected by the command. Say if you speak a command to adjust the lighting; the computer takes in your X and Y, realizes you are in the kitchen and it adjusts the lights in that area.

Either way, I would love to see some source code for this. I see this is mainly linux based. I use Windows and am in the process of writing my own voice recognition software that can grow with me as I need for it to.

I would just love to be contacted by other that are interested in the same thing(s).

Linux Management with Red Hat Satellite: Measuring Business Impact and ROI

Linux has become a key foundation for supporting today's rapidly growing IT environments. Linux is being used to deploy business applications and databases, trading on its reputation as a low-cost operating environment. For many IT organizations, Linux is a mainstay for deploying Web servers and has evolved from handling basic file, print, and utility workloads to running mission-critical applications and databases, physically, virtually, and in the cloud. As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.

White Paper
Private PaaS for the Agile Enterprise

If you already use virtualized infrastructure, you are well on your way to leveraging the power of the cloud. Virtualization offers the promise of limitless resources, but how do you manage that scalability when your DevOps team doesn’t scale?

They need agility, flexibility, convenience, ROI, and control.

Stackato private Platform-as-a-Service technology from ActiveState extends your private cloud infrastructure by creating a private PaaS to provide on-demand availability, flexibility, control, and ultimately, faster time-to-market for your enterprise.
