"I would be very curious to learn more about Buffett's thoughts on index funds,..."

Since I posted an article about replicating Berkshire with DIA, PBJ, XLP, and EFA, I have been been researching ETF's in earnest. My interest picked up additionally when I saw several posts about VDC.

Fidelity, which came to the ETF game late has been encouraging the use of ETF's with no commission trading of 65 ETF's.

I understand the encouragement of many to have a concentrated portfolio but I just don't feel comfortable with all of my eggs in 3 or 4 baskets and when I am not comfortable I tend to trade too much.
