RAID is no replacement for a proper backup. If you accidently delete or overwrite a file, RAID will delete/overwrite that file on all disks in the array immediately. You don't have a backup to restore that file.
I would prefer not to be tied to the software package.
I take it you're not using NTFS then? For the sake of argument that would tie you to Windows. The only way you won't tie your self to any one software package is to print everything out on to paper (but be careful what paper and ink you use).
