Aptitude vs. Apt-Get

I’m a big fan of apt-get, especially since the autoremove functionality was added, but this guy thinks aptitude rocks. He makes some very valid points too. The most potent is aptitude’s one-command-with-several-options as opposed to apt-get’s several-different-commands-for-different-options.

I might take a second look at aptitude in the next few days just to see if aptitude really rocks that much. 🙂
