I had an Intern run afoul of the text scaling on Windows a couple months ago.  When he started we thought they’d given him a laptop with some ridiculously low resolution, and he couldn’t run the main application we needed him working with in a usable fashion.  Finally I realized Windows was “zooming” it.  When an application needs to be able to display a certain number of “lines” of data to be usable, this sort of behavior isn’t exactly useful in such a case.
