Never used eTrust IDS, but if you want more information about Snort
the docs section is really helpful:


Personally I like snort for many reasons, including the fact that it
is Open Source, Modular architecture (developing plugins is easy),
flexible language to write rules, and many many more..

Hope that is a start...
