Going from remote desktop to Citrix

I currently have a site that uses remote desktop (TERMINAL SERVICES) on a server 2008 platform, they have 3 main sites connecting in and various remote users, I want to trial citrix and see how it performs, what's the best solution to use on trial basis?

if you are looking for desktop \ application virtualization then go for xendesktop 7. or you can go for xenapp 6.5 for the same so that you can publish desktop using 2008 R2 servers

citrix gives you 90 days trail period for all the products, you can download the same under http://www.citrix.com/downloads.html and under find downloads you can select the product to download and on same page you can register for trail license

Which one do you recommend?

You know that Citrix will run on top of RDS.  What you could do with Citrix is publish applications, Citrix policies for mapping, etc.

What I would do is install Citrix on a Win2K8 RD Server.  I would perform following tests:

1. Test ICA vs. RDP and see if you see any difference
2. Try Citrix policies for items such as printer mappings, etc.

Depending on the Citrix edition/version, you could try items such as Application Isolation, Resource Manager, deployment features, etc.
