That said, don't put important data on your OS drive, and you can RAID0 all you want.
Think of it this way: learn about statistics before you try arguing about probabilities. The probability of one out of two drives failing is higher than the probability of a single drive failing by itself. Most people don't realize this, which is why I pointed it out.
