Although the other answers are true I still use apt-get most of the
time. aptitude occasionally makes strange decisions on what to
install and what to remove. Then it wants to install packages I
don't want and I don't need (e.g. spamassassin, wine ...) and wants
to remove packages I need and use (nearly) every day
(mozilla-enigmail, gnotime, pdftk ...). So, have an attentive look
at the packages aptitude wants to install/remove!
