GNOMEv3 is totally disrecommended with X2Go. The XRandR support does  
not work with the resizing capabilities of X2Go's (N)X-Server  
(x2goagent).

Use MATE Desktop instead.

AFAIK the maximize feature does not work on Windows atm. It works on  
Linux just fine AFAIK. (At least the maxmimize window feature in  
PyHoca-GUI works on Linux, but not on Windows).
