I didn't do any formal benchmark. The XWindows display is noticeably laggy
when you drag windows in Pharo, but I didn't find it annoying. The baseline
installs I did were not noticeably slower than what I'm used to.  I did
some testing and debugging for several hours and I forgot I was running
XSL, except for the keyboard. I haven't figured out why my quotes and
apostrophes and tildes are not right. I think I had that problem in a
lubuntu VM under Windows 10, too.

Maybe the WSL method will be a useful alternative.
