I am using a Debian installation made with Knoppix, so my packages are a mix 
from both testing and unstable distributions.

With the addition of the search tool lately, that can search through package 
description, the only thing missing in my opinion in Synaptic would be 
distribution selection, i.e. beeing able to select between stable, testing, 
unstable and experimental depending on what your /etc/apt/sources.list 
contains. The equivalent with the apt-get command line command is the 
"apt-get -t branch" command where branch is stable, testing, etc.

When a new version of Synaptic with this feature gets out, I guess I will not 
need to use apt-get directly anymore :-)
