I don't have any input Re: cpu usage except to say that I've just
learned to live with it. It really bugs me though b/c it causes some
chunk of the Squeak image and VM to remain in memory all the time and
with a few squeak images running my system becomes very bogged down. I
can say that Squeak+VNC works great...not the Squeak VNC server mind
you, just a normal UNIX box set up with VNC running a squeak image. I
use this all the time over my cable connection and it's pretty quick.
Someone (Avi?) mentioned Nebraska but I had problems with it under 3.6
whenever I would do a mouse drag (like moving a window).
