Ubuntu and debian based distros

Ubuntu is a good distro (for fun and learn linux), but for "the real thing" it fails.

1-Where is graphic tools to install/admin the major servers (apache/tomcat/postfix/bind).
2-Where is the install/admin/reference docs for that software (ok the community is huge, but is not the same thing) ?
3-Why not create pre-configured "packages" in the installation routine to satisfy most of the uses for linux: webserver with log reports, webdesign, programming...
I know people that deal with linux are capable for install/compile software, but I prefer to waste my time with something usefull (not in search solution for install/configure bind for example...)
