Ubuntu Unity 3D and GNOME 3 desktop environments are fully supported starting from version 4.3. Unity 3D has been the default desktop of Ubuntu since the release of Ubuntu 11.04 and GNOME 3 has been the default desktop environment on Fedora since version 15.

The implemention of the following Feature Request, https://www.nomachine.com/FR06I02466, means that users can create NoMachine virtual desktops where compositing Window managers such as Compiz or Mutter are in use.

If you are using an earlier version of NoMachine software, or you simply prefer to use an alternative desktop environment to Unity 3D and GNOME 3, please consult the following articles:
