For some reason I didn't see that Darktable is missing. Other than that I vote Gimp.

I've been using GIMP for a while, and now I like it even more in version 2.8. Single window mode rocks!

hardcore gimp'ist, and a blender noob (still never got to the level of competence in it as i was with softimage), and i find myself drawn to vote for mypaint. if you've got a wacom tablet or penabled screen... and you're an artist... and you've not tried MyPaint yet... you are in for a treat. your mind will be blown. it makes old "Painter" look like a gimmick-ridden clumsy plastic farce.

so clean, so clever, so capable.

GIMP is the best of all-time for Linux, and it gets my "of the Year" vote as well because of the improvements made to it this year like allowing you to get rid of those dreadful multiple windows.

GIMP is a very good general package, but when it comes to raw photo images I love a bit of RawTherapy, and for vector graphics I enjoy Inkscape.
Now, where is that three-sided coin when you need it ...

I was always aware of the capabilities of Gimp, but still refused to use it, and used Photoshop in wine instead. Since 2.8, and the single window mode has been added as an option, i have felt comfortable enough to switch 100%. Not only have i been happy with the transition, i've also been very impressed with the flexibility of the UI, such as amarok style dockable toolboxes ect. I am more efficient on Gimp now than i was on photoshop.
