I actually miss the good'ol days of dselect. Apart from that I've been

Probably old advice, apt is the most recommended nowadays.
I don't think that is true at all.
Agreed. There are pros and cons. I like and use aptitude.
Yeah, I thought I read somewhere that aptitude is not recommended

negative experiences with aptitude (it would always try to uninstall
packages installed by apt), so the right sentence would be "apt is the
most recommended nowadays by me"®
