Beg to differ - cant stand Synaptic and really like Adept when it works 
proper. As it does not on my system since some time...

Both have some good and bad points though, a combination of stuff like: 
changing country server for all repos (Adept) w one click, notifying 
user when update of a repo did not work (Synaptic), import keys from 
packet manager (Adept) and so on and so forth..
