It's not just the remote protocol in X11 that is slow, everything related to windows are slow. I have a rather fast Nvidia and ATI video card, with proprietary drivers installed, but performance is not even close to what I get when I reboot into Windows. Simply dragging a window around shows tearing on the edges, dragging Firefox around using OSNews site shows really bad draw artifacts (never seen under Windows). The list goes on.

This is not a performance problem, it is a vsync problem.
