  2. Mehmet Keçeci says:

    “vaster in functionality” or “master in functionality”. Which one is true? (Aptitude is vaster in functionality than apt-get and integrates functionalities of apt-get and its other variants including apt-mark and apt-cache.)

    • Gunjit Khera says:

      Aptitude much more vast in functionality than just apt-get, as it does the work of apt-get, apt-cache and apt-mark.
