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.
