Software I run:

Software I have had problems with:

Arts and Letters for Windog
Would not install.

Warp IAK NewsReader/2 and Gopher
These would not run, no matter what I did, until a fairly recent release. Now there is no problem. The rest of the IAK runs flawlessly.

Hardware problems:

None with the Mach64, however I used to have a Mach32 (ATI Graphics Ultra Pro) and I found the ATI Mach32 drivers to be exceedingly stercoraceous.

The NEC allows 1024x768 at 76 Hz which is real nice, but I am not otherwise impressed with the NEC. It has distorted edges along the top centimeter. I would not buy another.
