one more note to add , they are clearly trying to get users to install
corel linux and they are putting the printer enhgancements into corel linux

The enhanced version of Corel LINUX OS also includes Corel Application
Printing Services Library. The printing library allows an application to
have more control over printer settings and printer selection. The open
source library project is currently hosted on opensource.corel.com and
Sourceforge.
