Note that these two programs do completely different things. GIMP is for manipulating (raster) images. Sodipodi is a drawing tool for producing scalable vector graphics. They can do little bits of the other, but you probably wouldn't want to use the GIMP primarilly for drawing scalable graphics, and you can't use Sodipodi to edit photos.

GIMP = photoshop
sodipodi = illustrator
