I have been booting on software raid for a long time. Although I admit
my boot partition a 256 MB is raid 1. And yes all 5 to 10 drives have
the same contents. And also I install grub on them so all of them can
boot if need be...

I call this an advantage over hardware. I mean I get  my 256 MB boot
and my 50GB / back under full raid level in a less than 30 minutes
instead of waiting for hours..
