Today I got my main gaming box running on two RAID-0 SSDs for boot/program files, to match the two RAID-1 HDDs for actual user data. I vow to never again use only one drive at a time.

This is clearly just propaganda from Big Business, who want me to watch the Superbowl this weekend instead of the World Championship of Standing Under Falling Things.  Follow the money, sheeple.
