I spotted this driver disk on eBay. What is the significance of the "Business" branding?

I have 2 pcs business PCs from 1997 MikroMikko ErgoProE 233MMX Pentium and 200MHz PentiumPro ( a.k.a Fujitsu in some countries.) they used mainly Matrox cards.
+ MikroMikko was built in Finland. Even circuit boards have "Made in Finland" like some old Nokia mobile phones.

Matrox was the graphic card that businesses and industries used.

The Mystique was Matrox's attempt at the gaming market. At that time the Millennium/Millennium II was their business/industry card.

This could be the "market segmantation" strategy. Offering your product to several sub-markets and tell the customers of each sub-market that the product fits their special needs (while in fact it´s basically always the same product).

Like Ati Xpert@Work and Xpert@Play, same Rage Pro graphics, only TV out on Play, so if you don´t need this, you can use even @Work for games.
