I think of VNC as 'incredibly slow'. I have never used any implementation of VNC nor whatever the MS Terminal Server protocol is called that could scroll an Emacs window with text in it at more than about three to five screens per second, with a noticeable lag -- over a local network! And this applies to scrolls by one line as much as to scrolls by whole pages, which is a bit tough if you want to scroll up five or six lines, line-by-line, as I do quite often. Meanwhile under X, even remote X (over an Ethernet LAN) scrolling is latency-free: it scrolls so fast it is a blur.
