"Don't like SystemD and or Pulse, use something else "

Yeah? Try it. Devuan is the only SystemD optional distro that I know of. With all upstream building their stuff dependent on SystemD requires a massive effort to avoid it.

"- quit moaning cause someone developed something you don't like which you are not forced to use, "

This needs to be re-written. "quit moaning because someone developed something you don't like and forced you to use it." There, fixed that for ya.

'Linux isn't a optionless bundle like Windows."

When it comes to things like Wayland, Pulse Audio, and SystemD it certainly is. I don't recall a hew and cry from the Linux userbase to get rid of X windows, or ALSA, and having one ring to rule them all (SystemD) is just a bad idea. There are a lot of things going on in Linux today that I don't like and think are pointless, and there are some that are good, but there's not enough space here for that.
