I have started to use both. Adept for ugrading when certain packages have bugs 
and I don't want them included. Adept allows a try and error approach for 
getting an optimal selection, since you see immeditately if one of the bad 
packages will be included as well and you can undo the last action.

I still use aptitude for full upgrades and removal of orphaned packages since 
it can do this very well.
