I guess what confuses me the most is that they both take place in the shell.  
Aptitude also confuses me.  I will get it, it will just take time.  I have 
heard that kdesudo is for gui applications and sudo for command line, but I am 
not sure I got that right.  So, after a lot of chastisement, I start with 
kdesudo and work my way up to gedit or sudo or aptitude.  I just try them 
until one of them works, and try to make a mental note of which works for 
what.  Hah!  It is not easy being me.
