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?"

I applaud the author for taking the initiative to perform experiments that the rest of us just talk about. These are very interesting conclusions. I never knew RAID1 in software was so slow.

I wish more people would take the effort to find out things for themselves instead of just carping.
