Why match up Gimp with Blender or even Scribus? They are nothing alike imo. Each one has it's own special purpose and features not found in any of the other apps.

Weird choices

Gimp and Scribus are not really comparable in function and neither really provides the function of gthumb. It's like asking which you prefer: the color blue, icecream, rollercoasters or Led Zeppelin.

There are several good viewers that are missing from the list here: GQview, Gwenview, Showimg, etc.

Inkscape. It has shown the fastest progress and, though still incomplete, is one of the most intuitive and usable apps on linux.

oh geez. GIMP + Blender. I cant vote for one, without voting for the other. They go hand in hand. However, i think i will have to vote for GIMP this time round, cause blender UI doesnt work with my GFX card, unless i use the standalone-no-DRI version they release, which seems to be older than the version name suggests. Cant wait till the make the UI code better, so that i can run it with 3D acceleration support.

I will just quote you in this one, since that's 100% the way I think and I've nothing to add to this

As was explained in the audio thread, it's unfortunately impossible (or better put, implausible) to have an award for every sub-category. This means that some apps that are indeed not at all directly comparable will end up in the same race, because they are in the same main category.

I like gwenview, I like to view photos only and am not interested in any manipulation of them, so I cannot comment on Gimp or any of the others since I don't have a digital camera.

The Gimp is a fantastic piece of software. Years ago I fell in love with Photoshop 4 and continued using it even when new versions were released (I could never feel quite comfortable under the new versions). I feel just as comfortable working with The Gimp, although it is obviously much more powerful than the old version of Photoshop which I was using. It has far more bells and whistles than I could ever use, but I never feel overwhelmed by its complexity (unlike the newer versions of Photoshop).

I am also a big fan of GQView, which reminds me of ACDSee Classic, the simplest viewer I've ever used.

ImageMagick has the easiest batch processing I've ever used, which also makes it a winner.

It's such a great thing for Linux fans that we've got so many great pieces of software!! It was hard to pick just one to vote for!

GIMP

It's simply the best...

Inkscape, when I need vector graphics.

I wish GIMP would load faster. It sure takes its time. Once up it is great and can handle most every format.
