      In addition to what Björn said, you should be able to use

      :set lines=99999 columns=99999

      in your gvimrc, or in a ":if has('gui_running')" wrapper in your
      vimrc, to always maximize the Vim GUI (gvim or, I suppose, MacVim).

      You can also zoom the split-windows inside Vim:

      - to do it always, put this in your vimrc:

      if has('windows')
      set winminwidth=0 winwidth=99999 winminheight=0 winheight=99999

      I use it only for the height, since when running vimdiff I prefer to
      have vertically split windows of equal width.

      - to do it once (from the keyboard, in Normal mode):
      - horizontally: Ctrl-W |
      - vertically: Ctrl-W _

      :help 'lines'
      :help 'columns'
      :help 'winheight'
      :help 'winminheight'
      :help 'winwidth'
      :help 'winminwidth'
      :help CTRL-W__
      :help CTRL-W_bar
