Waldman, Microsoft's first openly gay vice-president, charged with crafting the Pocket PC strategy, came to this post in January 2000 after a string of accomplishments for other Microsoft divisions, including at the Macintosh unit he created in 1996.
There he helped Office 98 become the platform's most popular office suite and Internet Explorer and Outlook Express to be bundled standard on the Mac. Waldman has declared that he will extend more desktop functionality to the Pocket PC, aim it at business users, and eliminate the need for a separate wireless Internet.
