Does synaptic do something better than apt-get? It doesn't appear to

Unless you are not running X, why is that a problem?
From another thread:
Meanwhile, Debian installs "synaptic" by default. Use synaptic
instead of aptitude.
Au contraire... The docs are quite explicit about this: use *aptitude*.
The fact is that Debian installs synaptic by default. I have been
using synaptic exclusively for nearly a year, and have experienced
none of the woes others on this list say they are encountering with
aptitude and apt-get.
I am not a crusader regarding this matter. Synaptic works for me and
has been trouble-free. And, importantly, it is not nearly as easy to
get in trouble when using synaptic as it is when using aptitude or
apt-get; I speak from experience.
