I was not impressed by spree. The feel and look of it all just wasnt convincing and did not inspire any confidence. Theming could be more logical and easier to do. Shortage of documentation.
I am using spree to setup an online commerce site and in general it's rather good. It's self contained and nice to work with, and having phpmyadmin pre-installed really does save a ton of time.
That being said I feel it should have better documentation in regards to the stack setup. It took me a while to figure out their apache conf and ctlscript.
In ragards to advice, It uses passenger so you might be in store for some annoying bugs with bundler. If you're installing new gems make sure to 'bundle pack' and 'bundle install --path vendor/cache'
