I'm not an advocate of systemd, but you claims are ridiculous. Indeed,
systemd could do more than an init system should do, but you aren't
forced to use it, for more than an init system should do, let alone that
systemd introduced some useful things, such as systemd-nspawn, that for
a lot of desires, is much better than chroot. You could call binary log
files idiotic, but even this is not really an issue, e.g. just replace
"cat" with "strings". The old sysvinit approach needed improvement or to
be replaced. Systemd might not be the best choice, but it doesn't make
Linux more complex or almost unusable. For example, you could continue
using fstab, you aren't forced to drop it.

Depending on what you want to archive, there are good reasons to prefer
FreeBSD over Linux or vice versa, but systemd for sure doesn't change
Linux in a way, that migrating to FreeBSD makes sense, if Linux was the
right choice without systemd. Apart from this, the comparison with
Windows only shows, that you don't know what you are talking about.
