Either this is RAID and it should not be called "fake", or it is not and it shouldn't be called "RAID"..:-) There are probably very good technical rationales for putting both these words together, but I think this is not really adapted for low-end users such as myself. I think that "Serial ATA RAID" is the one that gets my vote unless someone comes with a very good rationale for using such jargon.
