I voted for the GIMP. But, I sometimes use Chalk which is the rebranded Krita of KOffice 1.6.3 which lives on as part of the Trinity Desktop Environment. Chalk doesn't have all the features of the GIMP, but it appeals to those who want a lightweight editor.

^ thing is, I find gimp to be pretty lightweight these days, at least in comparison.
i guess it's (at least partly) because they stick to gtk2 instead of 3.

Hi, I think photography is a different thing than graphics editor or painting, so apps like darktable, DigiKam, RawTherapee and other should have their own category.
Of course, a photograph uses several of them with Gimp, but this is a different kind of tool. Also Hugin is a very specialized tool. Maybe several tools to be voted at once?
So should have painting category and photography category. As painting, I'd add Inkscape too.

A landslide victory for GIMP.
