As far as I know, aptitude was the new and preferred installer some time ago and thats why it was used in some of the older tutorials, but that has been changed and now apt is the normal way to install packages again.

It does not matter of you use apt or aptitude, they work both as they are just to different interfaces to the debain package databases, you can even switch between them during install without causing any problems.

Personally I use apt for years, never switched to aptitude and never had a problem with it. Beside that, the command is shorter.
