Imagine the HELL ON EARTH that will be if every fuck*ng company decides to do it's own "RAID Mode" controller. Why we have a standard like AHCI then?

The real problem here is that AHCI firmwares are crap, and RAID will not solve problems with overheating, neither make better power consumption counters. RAID is doing the right thing in this specific case, because a lot of companies create AHCI firmware with no optimizations at all, so forcing a "default sane" for power consumption makes the sensation that RAID mode is a better standard.

Until proven wrong, this is still a move to let Linux out of the market, and if Lenovo is not the one to blame, is the one guilty of colluding with Intel to delay Linux support on this equipment.
