It is Gimp for me but I voted for Tux Paint because it keeps the kids occupied while letting them do something on the computer other than put 'untitled folder' all over the desktop.

Of course The Gimp is everything I could ever want.

But the question said "of the year" so I went for something newer and was going to go for Inkscape, but I really don't use it that much (it still ain't FreeHand).

I have to vote for the one I find myself using for everything and that I should be using for so much more: Blender! Endless potential!

Inkscape, but I use Gimp almost as much... Voted Inkscape but, InKscape and Gimp are different tools...

For photography, editing photo levels and tuning, The GIMP is a treat once you know the motions.

The Gimp workhorse.

I've been using it for years, and keep learning new stuff about it. Perhaps it's not "perfect" or "doesn't satisfy professional requirements", but there is a lot that can be done with it. For example:
