Which Lisp Should I Learn?

I've already played with scheme.

What variant of Lisp should I learn in order to write *real* programs? I'm thinking of doing some GUI stuff, possibly with GTK.

Lisp is still commonly used in AI applications. cLisp or "Common LISP" is probably the most popular these days.

If your plan is to write GTK apps however, you might want to consider learning C instead.
