What works

- Startup of X2.exe

- Connect to license server

- Open project

- Open schematics

- Open PCB 

What does not

- Schematic editor really slow; probably because X2 uses GDI font rendering by default and lacks option to turn it off

- PCB editor crashes when using live highlighting via the mouse

- X2.EXE crashes with Xorg errors on some attempts to resize the window


- Disable live highlighting for PCB

- Don't resize the main window

What was not tested
