It had twm in ROM.
Running a remote window manager sucked quite a lot as I recall.
So if you run Mutter on your local system it should display remote applications just fine, I would think. Assuming that Gnome can still handle a half-local, half-remote configuration.
Mutter: a window manager for GNOME 3

Remote WMs work pretty well - with modern WMs like Metacity at least. In fact, they're pretty strongly preferable because of all the GNOME communication stuff that happens via D-BUS, gconf, etc rather than X11.
Even if Mutter was to be run locally, though, that doesn't change the fact that you're often talking about a 700MHz Via C7 (or even a 500MHz C3) system that while it supports insanely fast hardware crypto doesn't have any hardware 3D support.
