Poll, was Audacity
Audacity is free, open source software for recording and editing sounds.
It is available for Mac OS X, Microsoft Windows, GNU/Linux, and other operating systems.
Audacity also took 1st place last year. The fact that it is freeware, versatile, and compatible with such a wide range of Operating Systems no doubt contributes to its success.
In second place came Adobe Audition (formerly known as Cool Edit Pro).
Adobe Audition is a prosumer audio editing application that has a bit of a steep learning curve, but its flexibility and advanced options no doubt appeal to those that are serious about their sound.
Tied for third place were Goldwave and Cool Edit Pro.
