As solo careers go, Rock Bottom alone wins it for Wyatt, but with their bands it's easily Robert Fripp

The obvious answer is both. I need ITCOTCK, Lizard, LTIA, Discipline, and (No Pussyfooting) in my life equally as much as Volume TwoThird, FourthRock Bottom, and Little Red Record. Really, with they both being prog titans, both is the only answer.

I love Wyatt, but I have to go with Frippy.

Both are living legends, but I would imagine Robert Wyatt to be better company.

Both. Fripp is the brains (mostly), Wyatt is the soul (mostly).

Bob. The Fripp one.

Fripp is without question the bigger icon.

Voted both but regret it a little as Wyatt has too few votes.

^  Voted for Wyatt as I have more solo albums by him.  But I really like both.  But Wyatt is far too important a figure to only have a handful of votes.

Robert Fripp.

When he rides, my fears subside.
For darkness turns once more to light.
Through the skies, his white horse flies.
To find a land beyond the night.

Robert Wyatt. Robert Fripp produced the second Matching Mole album (apparently unnerving Phil Miller in the process), and it was there that he met Brian Eno and shortly thereafter the pair made No Pussyfooting. So Wyatt was the unwitting progenitor of Frippertronics!
'Like so many of you
I've got my doubts about how much to contribute
