No. It won't get you in a vendor lockin, and it is MUCH better
performance-wise to boot.

Just ditch the ataraid crap, the only use for it is to share raid arrays
with MS Windows.   You'll be much better off using the ataraid controllers
as simple ata controllers, and using linux software raid (md raid).
