Does Corel Draw use some kind of graphics hardware acceleration (e.g. Direct2D)? I find that GTK software completely ignores hardware accelerated rendering most of the time; Cairo (which renders most of the GNOME UI now) is pretty much completely a software renderer, and the GNOME 3 desktop only uses OpenGL for window compositing, not most drawing, as far as I'm aware.

Coincidentally perhaps, both Corel and TurboCAD use accelerated graphics for rendering.
