Ditto. I'm sure it's a fine program, but I, too, get lost
with the ncurses interface of aptitude
Add a ditto onto to the ditto regarding my own inability
to cope with the ncurses interface to aptitude ....
To me it seems cumbersome and somewhat cryptic ....
And I think Aptitude works very well and couldn't wait to ditch dselect
for it. Different strokes and all that. I've had the displeasure of
being dumped into Synaptic on Ubuntu and friends. I'll take Aptitude
every time, thank you very much.

Displeasure? Synaptic is brain dead simple, what's not to like?
It's a GUI app?

Scientists are people, too. IOW, they also "crave power, money,
respect, and influence, and they also fear for their jobs. Each
can be a healthy motivator, but each has the ability to turn a
good scientist into a bad one; and in some cases, they can turn
a good scientist into a charlatan."
