Gui vs Console

When I started learning to code, I was so much obsessed with coding nice and flashy gui programs. Interestingly, as I gain knowledge to do so I find myself falling deeper in love with console and command line programs even though I can now code gui ones. I just want to see what a program does rather than flashy colors over the screen plus inputting commands to a program gives me the sense of control over it since I have to fully understand it's usage unlike GUI ones where nice looking graphics guide you. Is this trend a common thing out there or is it just my style and taste?

Well both definitely has their benefits. But yes, with Console applications it's easier to quickly view a value. Whilst in a GUI you need to add a new component, and if there's too much to show, it starts becoming big. But you can also just use both. As you usually have a console in your IDE. So you can use GUI to design and show something presentable, and then you can use the Console to debug and more.

It is a common trait amongst professional programmers, hence the popularity of using linux and its bash command line
