I almost always use dselect/aptitude, but I'm an advocate for Linux and 
installed the synaptic front-end to apt-get when a friend of mine 
complained that installing packages was too difficult using a 
text-based interface.  It looks like a nice, clean interface with 
minimal dependencies.  It handles mixed systems (stable+testing, etc.) 
quite well.  I'll probably stick to aptitude for normal use, though, as 
I like being able to do things over the network and text is so much 
faster than X or VNC.
