They are two different front-ends for package management. apt lets you do
stuff like apt-get update, and apt-get dist-upgrade, or apt-get install
mozilla. dselect uses ncurses to give you a menu of packages to select from.
dselect is good if you want to poke around and see what there is.
(apt-cache search is good for this too.) apt-get is faster for installing
something when you know what you want.
