apt vs apt-get. Re: [libreoffice-users] ttf-mscorefonts-installer

Hi :)
Try just "apt" instead of "apt-get" sometime.  It's new, I think.  It uses
apt-get but adds some functionality and I think it can be set to be more
colourful too.

Apt-Get Upgrade often leaves about 4 packages (perhaps the
linux-headers?).  These can be installed seperately by apt-get now but I
used to have to use Synaptic's upgrade button.

Apt Upgrade does it all and after the download/get part it gives a
progress-bar to show how far it's got through the (unpack/unzip/uncompress
+ install + setting-up/configuring) processes.  The progress-bar doesn't
claim to show time & an eta but instead just shows work-done and work
remaining.

I think "apt" uses apt-get to do most of the work but then just adds some
extra bits, or makes them easier to remember or something.

So apt is more like the default package manager in Arch now - but easier to
remember and use.

Regards from
a Tom :)
