I just made a post to the Ubuntu Brainstorm. I was curious what other people felt about it:
In the Ubuntu Community Documentation there is a FakeRaidHowto that clearly states:
"FakeRAID is not supported by Ubuntu. Trying to install Ubuntu on such a partition could easily result in the loss of all your data."
This is quite the bummer because Windows is fully supported with "on motherboard" software RAIDs (like Nvidia's). It's pretty sad that I can get support for my software RAID from Microsoft, but not from Canonical.
Now I know any serious enthusiast would immediately recommend a true hardware RAID, but what about those of us who can't afford it. Thousands of people are using "on motherboard" software RAIDs with Windows and have no problem AND have total technical support. Why don't we fully support it?
