I have put together an initial cut at a website which summarizes the Red Hat/E*Trade controversy that happened this week:

E(star)Trouble compiles the press coverage, the rants on Slashdot, as well as some details of my personal experience with E*Trade's questionable practices. This is work in progress, since there's an entire week to go before the fat lady sings on August 9th. I'll try to keep up to date as much as possible.

Why did I call it E(star)Trouble? Well, I did not think that plastering E*Trouble all over the web site is such a good idea, given the recent trends...

This is a good summary of the Red Hat IPO fiasco, which we've purposefully chosen to give less coverage to.
