That's a newbie doc? :) Clear as mud. I've used Etch for a year,
Synaptic and Apt-Get. Every time people suggest aptitude, the next two
paragraphs are about how if you've used apt-get before then (insert
two paragraphs of incomprehensible warnings).

So exercising an abundance of caution I usually stick with synaptic.
Maybe on my next install I'll look into Aptitude.
