That is my understanding too.  Perhaps I'm just lazy, but I like being 
able to just plug all the drives into the controller and have everything 
just work.  I am not saying software RAID is bad, but I just don't have 
the time to fiddle with it anymore when a cheap and stable hardware RAID 
card is readily available and is well supported with "out of the box"
