Can't say I agree. If anything the opposite.  Certainly SW linux raid
is faster (on any reasonable hardware setup) than any "BIOS raid" I
have seen.  The major advantage of SW raid is that when your BIOS raid
dies you are stuffed unless you can find the same motherboard or a
compatible version.

With SW raid, any linux machine will do for recovery.
