I should have worded the poll! The question should have been:

What is the apt frontend you mostly use for package management?
1 - adept
2 - aptitude
3 - apt-get
4 - adept
5 - synaptic
6 - other (specify)
The Debian Documentation website contains the FAQ, Installation Manual and the Release Notes for Etch. They're helpful if you want to learn more about debian!
