Free Vector Graphics Adobe Illustrator Alternative

The name: Inkscape
The site: http://inkscape.org/

What it does:
Allows you to make advanced vector graphics. In case you don't know what vector graphics are. They're basically (theoretically infinitely?) scalable images.

Is it free: Of course. Free download.
What operating systems does it run on currently? Check here to be up to date.

Sample work that I did:



If you're ever searching for a tool that you're used to in Adobe Illustrator and aren't sure what it's called in Inkscape, make before to check out the Inkscape wiki, especially the AdobeToolMap page.
