Yes, agreed. it is a fully integrated all-in-one program that does all that and
propitiatory protocols and storage formats.

The UNIX/Linux is, always has been, separate functions.
The old "each thing does one thing and does it well".
The MTA is not a database, but you can plug into it any one of a number of
database system.

The message repository is not a database unless you want it to be and is often,
in simpler systems just a file store using a well known storage format on any of
of a number of fully open file systems.

Similarly with calendaring systems and more.

There is no need to master them all in one bite. There is no need to upgrade
them all in one bite as your needs grow. If you don't like one you can try
another.

As far as I can see Microsoft offers none of these 'alternatives'.
