ME had an issue if you mixed drivers, since they could trample each other (ME supported DOS drivers, Windows 9x drivers, and Windows 2K drivers, which all didn't play nice with each other). There was also the issue with data loss if your HDD supported caching, which was later patched. If you avoided mixing drivers (so probably didn't keep that old Sound Blaster 16 in use OR do pure DOS mode stuff, which ME didn't like doing any more anyway), and got the HDD cache issue solved, it was a solid system in my experience.

The sooner you fall behind, the more time you have to catch up.
