Simple really, I know how  to use it really  well for my needs. I have been using 
it for about 10 years so I am very comfortable with it.

I do use aptitude and apt-get, from a command line, great tools also.

 Dselect has been deprecated in favor of new shining tools. The thing about 
suggested preferred tools, ... Debian deprecated apt-get in favor of aptitude in 
Lenny, Squeeze reversed that suggestion, apt-get is okay to use now, dselect will 
probably never make a comeback though :-)
