Printing under X

I'm basically looking at moving about 20 client pc's over to Linux.
I've been really impressed with KDE 3.2.3. We've unfortunately got
some custom apps that only run on the Windows platform. I'm going to
let these users use rdp to connect on to a terminal server. Are there
any hidden licensing issues?I assume it's only a matter of buying a
terminal services user license per user. This should be a lot cheaper
than buying XP for these machines. If anyone's had experience at this
I'd appreciate their input?
As regards printing, from all the reading I've done CUPS seems to be the
way to go. It's really easy to setup with KDE's printing Manager
utility. The only problem I've got with this is that KDE's apps see
these printers, but most other Apps don't. i.e Open Office, Gimp, etc.
Is there a way around this?Does X implement a universal prinitng
interface (to CUPS/LPD,etc) or does X leave it up to the Apps.
Fundamently I want to add a printer and let it be seen by all my Apps.
Is this possible?
