While Gimp is a great program the improvements in Inkscape and the development pace give it the edge.

This isn't a fair poll. Mos the apps listed fall into different categories. Sure they are all intended to make "graphics", but GIMP is a raster graphics editor, Inkscape is a vector graphics, Scribus is a publishing app and Blender is a 3D graphics editor. Still there probably isn't much competition on each separate area as to split the poll.

I voted for Inkscape as I recently had to use it and found it being very complete and professional overall. GIMP is a must too, and I'm trying to learn Blender.

Came out of nowhere (took my by surprise anyway) and gave us an MS Paint replacement (though one that is more powerful). Nothing beats it for a quick job. There are times you just don't need everything the gimp throws at you.

Voted GIMP because the award category is Graphics App of the Year and Scribus is really a desktop publishing application. In all do reality we should have a separate category for Inkscape (frigging awesome SVG graphics app, one of the best in the world), Scribus (professional quality DP app that has functionality many of the big names don't), blender (sweat, sweat 3D environment), and GIMP (Photoshop of GNU/Linux.) They are entirely different applications for entirely different things.

That was a hard choice, those are all good apps. I went for blender in the end, I still haven't learnt to do much with it but other peoples stuff in the gallery looks good.

I'm a gimp man myself. I do realize that the programs do entirely different things and havn't tested most the others accept for blender once which was really confusing for me. I probably could of done something useful if I just read a tutorial. I'm obviously to lazy to that though.
