I voted for imagemagick mostly because it came in useful for a programming project (wanted to resize images on upload). For day-to-day use (err... month-to-month, given how much I edit images?), I tend to use GIMP.

GIMP is the only graphics app I use. So I have no problem defending it

I voted for the Gimp as best all-around graphics app. And no doubt it will win. But I was a bit disappointed that one of the best graphics apps to come to the linux world in the past year wasn't even on the list.
XaraLX promises to outclass anything the Linux world has seen so far. So much more than a drawing program, it has vector graphics combined with raster image handling, special effects and more of the things that us graphic designers need and want on this platform. And it's a free download, making it all the more enticing. Still a few minor issues to work out and a couple of the Windows World tools musts be added, but even now it is a robust and capable program that blew my mind away. If it was on the list, it would have been my choice.

GIMP - just I haven't tried anything else. But for gimps terrible user interface, I think I will search for something better.

I agree with cincindie.. But I've got a long way to go before I can claim to be very familiar with any of them.
I vote for GIMP, for it's power, though it *is complex..

I do alot of photo editing so I have to go with The Gimp on this one although Inkscape is impressive. BTW, I don't know how all these people can knock Gimp for the user interface, it is completely customizable! Set it up to suit your needs, how can that be bad?
