Build a faster desktop with RAID

Given that hard disks have lagged behind the gains observed by Moores Law; I am starting to believe that: all servers should be RAID 1 (or better reliability) and all desktops should be RAID 0 (or better performance).

The thing I appreciate about your article is the statistics that quantify the gains.
It is also interesting to see a performance gain from RAID 1 albeit small.
