It's a question of settings... without colour gradients, background
pictures, opaque movement and sizing it should not be much worse than with
other windowmanagers.

I am using Amiwm, for two reasons: 
1) It reminds me of a great computer :-)
2) The normal Amiga windows don't have too fancy graphics, they were
designed for fast drawing even on a 7Mhz machine (yes, I know there are
quite fast Amigas today...), so they are fine for a bandwidth-limited
system like VNC. On the Amiga there was the bottleneck of Chip-RAM
access, with VNC it's the network connection. So it performs quite well.
