Certainly Windows won't implement Linux software RAID.  If you have room 
in the box, extra disks are pretty cheap, Windows could have its own 
disk(s), or own partitions.

And there is obviously virtualization to run a Windows guest on a Linux 
host and get Linux RAID that way.


P.S.  Is it a 64-bit CPU? 32-bit Linux on 64-bit hardware is maybe 
becoming quickly dusty.
