RIP Deneba Canvas 5; beloved Vector/Raster/CAD/Paint tool. Saviour of divergent graphics tools living in one package. Slayer of Illustrator, MacDraw, Digital Darkroom.

After taking over development ACD has rewritten Canvas 8,9,X.0.2 into a train wreak strewn with crashed computers and destroyed work. Loyalty to ones favorite drawing package goes only so far to cover up unstable releases and bad support. The interface has suffered so badly from it's windows port that it no longer resembles the little package that could. It's now another $500 bloated, fragile graphics package.

Canvas is not survived by any offspring capable of filling it's shoes.
[Version X.0.2]

The belkin software installs and operates reasonably well however it's alpha quality. It installs its usb kernel shim in the wrong place. The belkin writes all over /System/Library . This place is reserved for Apple software and develoer writing into this area threaten the stability of the operating system. After loading the kext, your System.log and dmesg will be filled with messages like:
Nostromo: SetAppPrefs 24576
Nostromo: SetAppPrefs 0
Nostromo: SetAppPrefs 4096
Nostromo: SetAppPrefs 8192
Nostromo: SetAppPrefs 12288
Nostromo: SetAppPrefs 16384
Nostromo: SetAppPrefs 20480
Nostromo: SetAppPrefs 24576
Nostromo: ReadHandler read aborted, terminating

As they don't provide an uninstaller, you may do the following as root to get it out

cd /System/Library/Extensions/
kextunload Nostromo.kext
rm -r Nostromo.kext
[Version 1.0.1]
