apt-get vs. dselect

Hi all.  I should maybe spend more time in the archives but just
looking for quick responses.

I assume others running Etch noticed the large amount of updates

When I run

	apt-get update;apt-get -u dist-upgrade

I get a similar but different set of changes than if I use 'dselect'.

Just curious about this.  For instance, apt-get shows me

	245 upgraded, 36 newly installed, 36 to remove and 1 not upgraded.

whereas dselect yields

	231 upgraded, 26 newly installed, 49 to remove and 3 not upgraded.

I'm sure there may be as many opinions as colors in the rainbow but
can't help to wonder which is "better".
