Why teach Console Applications instead of drag and drop forms?

If you have watched any "Getting Started" C# tutorials, you have probably seen the drag and drop Hello World example. You have never seen Visual Studio or C# before, so the presenter shows you Windows Forms and shows how easy it is to drag and drop controls onto a form, then you double click a button, add a bit of code and bingo, you have a working application.
