An opinion, but not a strong one:

I have not noticed a performance problem with rounded corners (and I 
haven't timed how much time they consume), but I have been running 
with square corners for a while. I find the square corners a bit 
nicer-looking, and I find it easier to visually distinguish windows 
from buttons and flaps when some are square and some are rounded than 
when all are rounded.
