Well. It is just an market anomaly created by the Microsoft's decision
to disable software RAID feature in non-server versions of Windows. For
whatever reason, Microsoft decided that desktop users don't need
software RAID. Probably using the same logic that coined the famous
"640Kb is enough for everybody" phrase.
After engineering was done with its job (which was actually quite
logical thing to do), marketing simply went one step further by not
telling people what really they are spending their money on: standard
disk controller with software RAID device driver. Given the almost
non-existant laws for consumer protection in western world, almost
anything can go.
