apt-get vs aptitude

Today I wanted to replace gnome-panel with awn, but I got some dependency errors. I looked around and I found out that if you use aptitude, it will resolve any dependencies. It will also remove all packages if you  use it  to remove anything.( eg aptitude remove APPLICATION )  Also, you enter aptitude in the prompt, a nice interface will pop up. Aptitude just seems a better option to apt-get.
