apt and apt-get is confusing

they say only use apt-get

but apt has more colors and progress bar

@cdmnky no? apt was the next generation interface

why would you use only apt-get?

@violet could've sworn i remembered seeing tutorials when i was starting out saying never use apt

@cdmnky nah, apt is fine except maybe try apt-get if something is broken weirdly, but usually aptitude is better than either for dependency resolution

@cdmnky The output if apt is not guaranteed to be backwards compatible, so you should use apt-get in scripts, apt if it’s for human consumption.

@cdmnky I pretty much only use apt now. Combined commands and whatfor.
