Submission A Full Linux Alternative To Windows Home Server?

ben_ writes: The ZD Net UK website has a proposal for the open-source/Linux community to come up with an alternative to Windows Home Server.
From the posting: "There are a lot of Linux experts on this site. I challenge them to come up with a list of applications that work the best for each of the given functions found in Windows Home Server. Show me a list of something that you guys think will beat or meet Windows Home Server, that will work for a lot of people and that you think can be easily reproduced. I will build it and give you an honest appraisal of my experiences while doing it. I will document it well enough that others less skilled will be able to do it. I'd like to be able to release it as a DIY compilation distro if possible."
