Steven Sinofsky, the President of Windows and Windows Live at Microsoft, tweeted “couldn’t resist taking it out for a spin” with an accompanying photo of Sinofsky riding a Microsoft Surface tablet (it isn’t clear if it is the Windows RT or Windows 8 Pro version — likely Windows RT) like a freaking skateboard:
