Can I add here Corel Draw suite ?
I've managed to start and work with Corel Draw 12 (with Wine Doors I add 
VB common controls) but after wine 0.9.45 Corel stop working.

Also Corel Draw is widely used in DTP industry.

Finally imagine AVID* working better and faster under WINE, ..stop   I 
walk in a dream now, sorry for that ;)
