is there something similar to the management console in Windows for example

  1. GUI based Device Manager
  2. In windows server there is a server management console through which we can manage all system services, installed web server etc.

would appreciate pointing me in the right direction

There are some attempts at GUI device discovery/settings, but not supporting configuration. Are you already familiar with Ubuntu Tweak, which also supports extensions? (Note: I have an early-stage project, with similar objectives to your wish-list.) –  david6 Aug 4 '12 at 8:05
    
Would you also want this to run remotely, with an Ubuntu-based GUI client supporting/maintaining multiple server/hosts? –  david6 Aug 4 '12 at 8:07
    
just to be able to use it locally to manage the local machine is great, i wish you best of luck in your project and will look up Ubuntu tweak to see what can it do. –  EgyptLovesUbuntu Aug 5 '12 at 3:04
    
There are Web-GUI based options, including a commercial offering (with some limited free capabilities) from Canonical (the Ubuntu parent co.). Altough, this is not what you asked for .. –  david6 Aug 5 '12 at 3:12
