I, too, think the Azure portal is amazing to work with. It feels much more coherent than the AWS portal. I like the Azure command line package as well, in preference to the AWS CLI. I've never touched the Azure PowerShell tools and have never felt like I had to.
Creating resources via the portal or command line is something I only do as a last resort anyways; we use Terraform for all of our cloud resource creation purposes.
There are some things I definitely prefer in Azure to AWS too; I find the AD-based authentication to be much easier to understand and implement compared to IAM. The SMB shares (File storage) are great, integrate well with Kubernetes, and are a lot faster than EFS.
Non-premium VM IO performance is abysmal though, and I really wish I could store SSH public keys in Azure AD.
This is the same advice I gave to the AKS product manager.
