You might try searching the archives for articles confirming what I'm

You wouldn't necessarily mix the two, but the two can be installed on
the same machine -- Mine are. I don't use apt-get, and simply run
aptitude from the command line. It works much the same as the apt-get

I've run command line aptitude for several years without any problem in
doing so. In fact, it was on this list that I read an e-mail by a
revered member of this list, (can't remember offhand whom it was) who
indicated that aptitude handled dependencies and management better than
apt-get can.

You tread upon my patience.
