Every package could be marked to install (with the "+") or to delete (with the "-"). All theses operations are done simultaneously after confirmation by pression the "g" key (like "Go!"). Before aptitude, the standard program was "dselect", old graphic interface bound to "dpkg". Difficult for the beginners, it is not advised to use it anymore.
