What is the most popular and/or feature complete vector graphics package for Windows and/or Ubuntu Linux? I keep finding 'Vector Art' sites but nothing about the software used to create it. Adobe must sell a $$$ product but this is for a low-hit website where I sell my product.

I need to create those snazzy green 'buy' buttons, etc.

Update: It needs to be FREE.

What does "low-hit website" have to do with the question? – Su' Sep 10 '11 at 9:21
@Su' I was implying that said package must be NO COST or FREE. Illustrator is NOT FREE. – unixman83 Sep 10 '11 at 11:25
Um, you basically did everything but specify free or even cheap(until now), but okay sure. Next time actually say so up front. Trashing response as inapplicable. – Su' Sep 10 '11 at 11:52

GIMP and Inkscape are good at handling vector graphics and works on both windows and linux. As for illustrator alternative for linux- check sk1project. You can create "buy buttons" using one of these applications.
