Yes. With a kernel patched for realtime, or a recent unpatched 2.6
kernel, the choice of desktop/window manager will have no impact on
realtime audio performance (as measured by number of xruns), as long as
JACK is running in realtime mode.

The belief that stripping down your desktop will improve realtime audio
performance is a holdover from the bad old 2.4/early 2.6 days.
