With CE I suppose you mean Windows CE?

Performance is a very generic term. Performance of what? Non-visual
code? Graphics drawing?

I will suppose it is graphics drawing. No, I doubt that the debug
information causes this. I have noticed the graphics speed do is much
slower then in a desktop (I don't use .NET, so can't comment there),
but I never researched to find the reason why.

Also, without a benchmark, your assertion is empty. Which Lazarus code
is slower then which C# code? Are they really equivalent?
