By all means open an account with Vanguard and buy your Vanguard funds directly from them.
For trades of individual stocks (brokerage account) Vanguard charges more than Fidelity, particularly when your total funds at Fidelity reaches a level to qualify you for lower fees. If e-Trade were to make me angry, probably Fidelity would be where I'd go.
Much depends on your organization and whether you really want all your assets at one firm. I have accounts with both Vanguard and Fidelity (and some other mutual fund companies, and brokerage account with a deep discounter as well as with a "full-service" broker. It makes for a lot of mail, and binders for account statements, but I don't find this a problem.

Best wishes, Chris
