Great when troubleshooting from TTY. Lacks detailed search functioning; but is otherwise robust (great for conflict management vs. apt)
Why?? apt-get works just as well
when all went wrong - you will love it ...
Always use it.
Aptitude is the perfect frontend for apt. It has an ncurses frontend and dependency solutions. Using apt-get without aptitude should be a punishment, not a default.
I like it !
Aptitude trabaja sin dejar tanta basura en la cache y temp que apt-get
