On Debian/Ubuntu, apt-get. On Yellow Dog, I expect yum is the best.
I don't really like either of them on RH/FC/CentOS, but you gotta use
what you have...so I use 'yum' there.
Aptitude is just a higher-level tool than the apt-* tools, and while
I've never tried aptitude personally I've read disparaging things
about it. Also, the apt-* tools roughly matched the level of
functionality I had formerly with 'emerge' and (much more formerly)
with 'rpm'. All this is to say that aptitude isn't necessarily
"better" or "worse", it's just different.
