Linux "Although having this reputation, my question was: was a RAID 1 system too slow? Was it slower than not having any RAID? In fact, there are people that say that it is the other way round - these people say that having software RAID 1 is faster than having just one hard disk drive. In any case, who is right?"

RAID1 Good, RAID0 Bad

Any form of RAID1 is a better protection of your disk data than any form of RAID0. RAID0 only provides a performance benefit when done in hardware, like SCSI, and has a pretty high likelihood of losing all your data. Even if it did come on your motherboard for free ;-)
