Console workflows aren't that bad, as long as the tools offer discoverability. You know, the possibility to learn as you go instead of having to search the web for tutorials. The Linux world sure as hell isn't moving towards GUI-centricism, neither towards compatbility of any sorts. Binary compatibility even in user space is questionable, in kernel space it's a lottery win if it happens. Compatibility of settings is questionable too. Ever patched Apache and found that your setup goes FUBAR because a minor update broke something? That isn't a rare thing to happen, that sucks. IIS at least keeps a clean state between minor updates and still works mostly without any further babysitting after major updates.
This won't ever happen on Linux.

Console workflows themselves are, as I said, not bad. While I'm not a fan of writing scripts for everyhting, mostly because escaping every. Single. String is a major PITA, I write my C# tools in console form every now and then. Besides, Windows' Powershell is awesome!

Linux' bash, while powerful too, lacks loads of things Powershell has. Starting with an actually helpful help system (bash's help is mostly notes from people who already know for themselves, not a way to get started) and it's reliance on strings for everything makes piping, once again, a major PITA. Also, while it's powerfull, it's still suffering from the same illness as Windows' CMD, it has evolved over time and consistency wasn't a high priority during all those years.
