predicting the future?  yeah, well.

there are really only two choices today, Adaptec and Avago (formerly 
LSI, they also control the former Areca product line). I've not been 
very happy with the level of support Avago is offeriong for older 
products, and I've *never* liked Adaptec. Whoops, Avago is now Broadcom, 
a company I like even less for broken closed source firmware and total 
lack of hardware documentation.

There's a pile of 2nd tier players like Promise, and so forth, I won't 
touch these with a 10 foot pole.
