So how we did it the last place I worked. We used a mix of X2Go, X-11 forwarding/MobaXTerm, and RDP. It depended on the user as to how they wanted to do it.
RDP gave them a full desktop since X2Go couldn't any longer on GNOME 3. X2Go gave them just applications from a menu to pick. People who were used to the cli used X-11 forwarding because it's what they were used to.
