I'm sorry to belabor this point, but just to be clear, there *is* a UI, it’s just different... I've included a screenshot while RDPing into a Windows 2016 cell deployed on Cloud Foundry on GCP. You can see there is a UI with a terminal windows with Powershell, the task manager and config window spawned, and a few hints of the container technology with Get-ComputeProcess run and winc, our Garden runtime OCI-compliant container plugin, shown. Those are the app instances deployed to this cf-deployment.
Thus, Dr. Nic, you can indeed still use RDP and get a physical UI, but it only contains a single command terminal. And Zach is right, you need to be more command-line savvy to navigate to the UIs you're accustomed to, and not all of them are available. But as some of our colleagues have noted before, you can do anything in Powershell. :-)
As a bonus, we also provide a windows-utilities-release to enable RDP and perform other Windows-specific operations (like KMS activation). The stemcells are quite secure by default.
I don't want to detract from Ash's call for feedback, though. The consumption of .NET on CF is entering a golden era, and we're eager to hear what the community needs!
