To dselect or aptitude, that is the question;
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outragous dselect
where, alas, Sarge can barely meet Sid
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles
And by learning aptitude end them.

But seriously, both have their (dis)advantages, use them, feel them,
decide yourself. Better is what you can make out of them.

Flo - who was a dselect advocate for a long time and then switched to
aptitude because of its ability to easily handle mutliple releases.
I stayed there, and I don't regret it.
