Add/Remove Packages? ;-)

help.ubuntu.com uses apt-get:
https://help.ubuntu.com/8.04/add-applications/C/advanced.html#apt

In the next release, intrepid, apt-get will install recommends by default,
which aptitude already does. Both now have support for removing packages
installed as deps of something now removed.

Otherwise I don't see much difference.
