I agree.

Why so?

Due to harddisk prices, I think RAID configurations are quite common.

I use RAID to protect my data. I use a separate backup image
to protect my system. I confess I'm also influenced by the apparent
difficulties in setting up and maintaining bootable RAIDs.

I guess it might depend on your goals when using RAID.

I only have one - availability/up-time.
