Considering this, does Debian use apt get?
APT is the Advanced Package Tool, an advancedinterface to the Debian packaging system which provides theapt-get program. Unlike dpkg , apt-getdoes not understand .deb files, it works with the packagesproper name and can only install .deb archives from a sourcespecified in /etc/apt/sources.list .
can Debian use Ubuntu repositories? The repository url has to be added to the aptsources list on ubuntu and then the software can beinstalled from the package manager like synaptic.
