It can do anything the WM wants, but the norm is like in MSWindows.
Here I get vertical, horizontal or both, in full screen with or

The discussion is about which windows should be maximizable and then
making sure they have the button (details about what maximize is are
left to the wms). Typical fight wms vs apps.
