Given some experience here, I'd say that software RAID is far, far better than pseudo-RAID. I've had a Promise card do some horrible things to a RAID-1 array...

Never had a problem with software RAID (either Linux or Vinum). This is on personal workstations, though, and not a server supporting a workgroup or anything enterprise class. Of course, in an enterprise environment (or any how-many-9's pissing match :-), you should be considering nothing less than a SCSI RAID setup.
