I think you are missing his point. (That is if he point is what I thought it was. ;) )

Sure Linux can do all of that. But it's more complicated and disconnected than it needs to be.

I agree all system admins should know how to setup everything listed but it should be easier. Why does it need to be complicated? To limit who can do it?

I think he is talking more about creating a combined system with tools that allow you to easly manage all of these things. Look at what apple has done so far with their server stuff. A large portion of it's open source but it's one contained unit when looking from the outside. They also offer you all the tools you need to complete any basic task with out much work.

Now I do a lot of OS X Server work and it does have it's problems (many) but I believe that's a spot the open source community should look at. Basically create OS X but open source. Integrate all of those items into one software package.
