Indeed ACE's design is good from the big.
After using it a bit I found some drawbacks:
* No modern C++ idoms, no STL. Things are easy to misuse.
* No exceptions. One always have to check return values or ERRNO after invoking constructors.
* Classes with somewhat counterintuitive and mutually contradictory member-functions. One has to peruse the documentation and/or headers to use them properly.
* No namespaces, ugly naming conventions like ACE_Task<ACE_MT_SYNCH>, and it's sometimes not easy to distinguish a macro from a class name.
I am reluctant to use it in the future.
