Business and Content Creation Winstone 2004 Tests
A more "standard" set of tests of more easily recognizable desktop Business and Professional apps, would be Veritest's Winstone test suite, which is up next.

- Microsoft Access 2002

- Microsoft FrontPage 2002
- Microsoft Outlook 2002
- Microsoft PowerPoint 2002
- Microsoft Project 2002

The PC Magazine Content Creation Winstone 2004 test utilizes the following applications in its benchmark.
- Adobe Photoshop 7.0.1
- Adobe Premiere 6.50
- Macromedia Director MX 9.0

If you were looking for any revelations here, sorry there are none to be found. The Shuttle SB77G5 simply puts up a very strong showing versus its i925XE equipped counterparts. The system actually takes a slight lead in the Business Winstone test, which more than likely is simply within the margin of error for this set of benchmarks.
