Most definitely. I use both: for search and show, I love aptitude
(perhaps some familiarity factor). For install/remove I use apt-get:

with the Frankendebian horror shows I tend to throw at it (aptitude
tends to ponder for a while and proposes to rip out 3/4 of that
mess :-)

So love to both. And they regularly grow features seen on the other.
