I just searched on the Ubuntu forums (a place full of "regular", i.e.
not advanced, users) and found these results for Yesterday, which I
hope is recent enough. :)

threads mentioning apt-get: 146
threads mentioning aptitude: 27

posts mentioning apt-get: 214
posts mentioning aptitude: 34

I don't think there's any doubt from this that most people
use/recommend apt-get, even among the "regular" users.
