I agree, that's exactly what I like about LMMS, everything I need is included in one software. I prefer having one software that can use 10 plugins instead of 10 different softwares that I need to connect together with jack. It's much simpler and quick, everything is there. In fact, if I could record and edit audio tracks directly with LMMS it would be like heaven. I wouldn't need any other music software at all. I just hope someday there will be more native VST for Linux.
