Depends what the software raid people were saying. :)

Hardware & Software RAID have their places. We use HW RAID exclusively
in our shop (SMB w/ multiple sites and I'm the sole tech.) but that's
because I can't always be on-site when drives die so it's nice to know
I can be out of town for a few days and if a drive packs it in the
RAID system in our IBM servers is plug & play. I get the alert, call
our vendor, and he shows up 9am next morning with a replacement drive.
