But Stevie Bathiche, the area of hardware at Microsoft, admitted that there was much secrecy surrounding the Development of the Surface, so much so that during the initial stages worked “in an underground Bunker with no windows,” and then move to a building where the slots ventilation was needed were secured and identification using biometrics to enter.
This method differs dramatically from how it used to work for the company, so unlike what it says Steve Ballmer, Microsoft does have concealed Surface development to manufacturing partners, which explains why some are so angry now.
