Fripp and Omar. Like them equally but voted for Omar.

Hackett, followed by Howe, Latimer and Barre.

Latimer is the best beyond any doubt.
Hackett is also brilliant, as are Rothery, Gilmour and Howe.

I also like Lifeson, Santana, DiMiola and Gary Green and, from the new boys, Piotr Grudinski is superb.

The one I really don't rate is Robert Fripp. Once you've seen his fast cross picking technique once, there's not much else to enjoy.

Fripp over Zappa.

All musical tastes are subjective, so, I don't begrudge you of your opinion.
 
I do find enjoyment in a lot of other aspects of his playing, as well as cross picking. His lead guitar work on Bowie's and Gabriel's albums,  the sonically relaxing Frippertronic work, his intertwined (with Belew) lead/rhythm work on the "Discipline" and "Beat" albums, his math rock compositions/playing on "Thrak" and "The ConstruKction of Light", and, his sometimes off kilter approach to what is conventionally expected from a lead guitarist such as "Larks' Tongues in Aspic Part Two".
Making the useless useful 24/7.

Thank you. Nice to see a mature approach for a change. I'm delighted that you find enjoyment in his music.

I accept that Fripp has tried many other techniques but, personally, they don't do it for me. For example, No Pussyfooting is 45 minutes of my life totally wasted that I can't get back; Frippertronics is not for me. I don't find his solo technique appealing and his solos often spoil KC songs (particularly The Night Watch). 

It's just down to personal taste, I guess, but he's one of my least favourite musicians from the "classic" bands.

I usually vote for Fripp but today I gave Birds of Fire a spin and it blows my mind (like always), so Mc Laughlin it is.

Gilmour>Howe>Latimer>Fripp
I am currently digging:

Hawkwind, Rare Bird, Gong, Tangerine Dream, Khan, Iron Butterfly, and all things canterbury and hard-psych. I also love jazz!

Please drop me a message with album suggestions.

He won't win for sure, but my vote goes for Martin Barre, even though everyone else (on this list) is great.

Fripp, but if this was a multivote, it would've been so much less painful haha

I can easily vote for anyone on the list, but I'll choose David Gilmour.
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.
