I read in the Register that there is fork of Ubuntu called ubuntuBSD that was formed as a result of the SystemD vs sysvinit battles that have been going on for the last few years.

Their beta, ubuntuBSD, has taken its first breaths at Sourceforge, and the counter tells us more than 2,800 daredevils have already hit the download button. It uses Ubuntu 15.10 (Wily Werewolf) on top of the FreeBSD kernel.

This seems a bit silly to me. Replacing systemd is fine, other distros have done this already. Replacing Linux with BSD on the other hand is like being sad that your basement is unfinished, so instead of finishing your basement you move into a trailer, with no basement.
