Has anyone here used ACE
(http://www.cs.wustl.edu/~schmidt/ACE-overview.html)? Any impressions? I've
heard many people like it. Looking at the tutorials, I'm somewhat
disapoined that it doesn't use namespaces (I guess it's been around too
long for that), and the ACE_XXX_RETURN stuff seems rather odd (I can't
believe ACE doesn't use exceptions given it's heavy use of templates).

But, OTOH, I haven't heard about any similiar C++ networking abstraction
libraries (that are free (preferably BSD or LGPL), portable, and stable).
So if anyone has any knowledge of any...
