We've had one user implement 2x and I was not very impressed, to say  
the least.  Screens which display perfectly on TS & Citrix were a mess  
using 2x.  It appears not to handle background colours/patterns  
correctly which totally messed up most of our screens.  Had to do a  
quick fudge to get it to look something like reasonable, but its still  
not 100%  This is a real case of try before you buy
