Multiple OS on RAID vs seperate drives

I have two identical 128GB SSD drives and a motherboard that can RAID them SATA III. I need a windows OS and a LINUX OS. My question is: should I use separate drives for each OS, or should I RAID0 the SSDs and partition the drive. The Windows OS needs more space than the LINUX OS. I'm thinking the RAID idea will be the best in regards to speed, space optimization, and with no cost, but maybe I am missing something.

    Seems like a +1 for a RAID setup, even if it is fakeRAID.
  3. Not much traffic... Is there any reason not to do a "fake" RAID0 setup with a dual boot? At the moment, all signs point to RAID. Thanks in advance.
