He said things will be different, i.e. no lite, medium, or full packs. There will be one pack (similar to the lite pack) and then some add-on packages to that.

Ryan's pack actually updates and replaces windows files before you install. So basically you use it to integrate all the updates into your windows cd and then reformat.

It doesn't simply install them like windows update would like you are saying.

So basically you lose 25% of the storage space compared to if you had all the drives in RAID 0, compared to losing 50% of the storage space of RAID 1 or RAID 0+1 for redundency.

The space of only one drive is ever "wasted" on data used to rebuild the array (parity data). Mirroring always wastes half because an operational copy is always maintained, whereas a RAID 5 array must be rebuilt upon failure of a drive before the array's data can be accessed again. Well that sounds...

Not quite, RAID 1 is mirroring, to mirror 2 drives you must have a total of four, but you only have the useful storage capacity of 2. RAID 5 gets around that by using the space of one drive as parity to protect against loss on any other drive in the array. It gets more efficient with larger arrays....

What do you mean waste capacity? Assuming you get all drives the same size in a RAID 0 + 1 you won't have any extra capacity. Don't you actually lose capacity with a RAID 5 assuming you use identical drives?
