Synaptic on Ubuntu is nice, but aptitude is more powerful. (Thanks Daniel :-) ). Also, it's much easier to record installation and dpkg-configure messages with aptitude; although I have Ubuntu installed on an extra partition, and despite the "cuteness" of Synaptic, all my installations and upgrades are done with aptitude.
