GIMP due to its low memory requirements ... tear off menus ... & pressure-colour-rate- & something else - sensitive brushes .. no other program I know has such great pressure sensitive brushes ... :-)

I agree with bitpicker (post #15). I'm going to vote for Inkscape, but really it's the combination of Inkscape and The GIMP together that I love.

I'm curious about Scribus now though, so I'll have to check it out!

C'mon, Scribus is the DTP software, I don't think it should be here.
I like it but, he he, vote for the GIMP.

It seems funny to me to lump photographic image editing programs in with SVG drawing programs. They are used for entirely different things.

I use inkscape for drawing, and GIMP for image editing.

The new version of Inkscape (0.41) has a lot of neat new features, and they finally made the calligraphy tool useful!

GIMP works, but it is best if you are the combination photographer/computer hobbyist or programmer. No pro photographer that I know (I do this for a living) is going to take the time to learn how to use Script-Fu. No matter how powerful it is. Many of the interfaces aren't nearly as slick as Photoshop. If you are working anywhere in the double digits per hour, GIMP just isn't fast enough- especially compared to Photoshop CS.

My biggest wish for GIMP:

A way to sort through five hundred digital photographs in half an hour like I can in Photoshop CS.

I know that it will be hard to compete with a juggernaut such as Adobe, but who would have thought 10 years ago that Linux would compete if not spank Windows and Macintosh.
