    Not necessarily:

    "Drivers are represented using PPD (PostScript Printer Description) files, which support both Postscript and non-Postscript printers. [...] PPD files for Postscript printers will be added and they are ready to work. PPD files for other printers (PCL/SPL/ESCPR) contain reference to filter file (actual driver which translates data to printer binary format)." (emphasis mine)

    "Added driver for HP PCL5 printer"
    https://www.morphos-team.net/releasenotes/3.12

    So if his OfficeJet printer speaks PCL5, he should be able to cope without TurboPrint and use the new (since MorphOS 3.10) printing system instead.

    There's a chance his OfficeJet printer does exactly that, I think.
