Also Inkscape - I'm moving more and more stuff over to Inkscape and it looks more and more promising with even every CVS-release.

Can't wait to see it in a 1.0-version some day...

I like gliv a lot. It's only a viewer, but it's fast, keyboard-driven and unobtrusive.

Gimp is the best. Specially since they released the new version.

GIMP is clearly going to win, but thats because thats what everybody uses.
Inkscape is the best for me because I can edit SVGs. If the GIMP could edit (and save) SVGs, I'd vote for that one.

I voted for Gimp because the latest version 2.4.* is such a huge improvement over 2.2. The crop tool is now useful for cropping!!!!! Actually the whole experience is better, much more user friendly (by way of much improved tools and plug in system rather than any change in interface). Of course there is now full support for colour profiles and CMYK which had been conspicuously absent for so long, so Gimp is getting closer to being a photo editor on a par with that well known, closed source non-linux-available application whose name must not be spoken. Imo Gimp is actually better than all the commecrial tools as a pure photo editor (that's what i use it for) but batch processing is still a (very) weak point. Luckily there is fantastic application just appeared recently called Phatch (Photo Batch) which is GPL and cross platform and an incredibly good tool for all kinds of batch processing of images. It complements Gimp perfectly, filling in a big and possibly never to be filled gap. Finally I can do all my editing and batch processing easily and reliably without any non-free tools or Win only apps running on wine....I thought the day might never arrive. I'd vote for Phatch too if it was up there in the list.

I do use almost all of them. But really, really, I know Scribus will be underrated because it is intended towards professional document illustration. That should be a minority among general graphics. I suppose...

Whomsoever the winner. I know we all love the Gimp but my 100 cents this year are for Inkscape.

Gnuplot is missing and Povray is the heart of Blender

Gnuplot should be added. In a recent release it allows to construct animated gif in quite a sophisticated way without using to much space. Look at an animation on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foucault_pendulum for example.

Also Povray should be associated to Blender. It is like if you were comparing Fortran (formula translator) with a MacIntosh (window manager). The heart is Povray, like Fortran was the heart of all scientific libraries.

I am using Povray for sophisticated logos similar to the wikipedia logo. Blender is confusing the essentials. And you still need Photoshop for the look, not Blender.

Many additional softwares are based on Povray not only Blender

Missed gThumb

Why isn't gThumb listed? For basic common sense layout and ease of use it can't be beat.
Digital Camera Tool is vastly superior to Winblows apps like MGI Photosuite.

Vector-based graphics

I'm just learning how to use Fireworks, a vector-based graphics program for other operating systems. Are there any vector-based packages available Linux yet? Any that are comparable to Fireworks yet? I'm not trying to troll here; I use Linux sometimes, and Windows and Mac operating systems at other times. I'm really curious about whether there are some serious equivalents in the vector graphics editing space.
