Let's accept that this is true for the sake of the argument.
Still, the kFreeBSD ports are not FreeBSD. They have 106 systems 
reporting to popcon, compared to 120000 Linux systems just for amd64 and
With such a users base you do not dictate developement of an OS which has 
1000 times more users: you do your best to not stand in the way if you 
want a future.

I object to this political correctness bullshit: while operating systems 
may be born equal, their real world usage matters and Linux is more 
important than kFreeBSD.

Which, which very good approximation, nobody uses.
And let's not forget that there has been no real stable release yet.

This speaks more about you than systemd.
