FreeBSD is great as a file server, web server, etc. ZFS is totally awesome and stable under freeBSD. It is making progress in Linux (I use it daily) but it is not quite there yet. On the other hand, a compute server or virtual hypervisor does not look too great right now in BSD, because of incomplete NUMA and lack of VM options. Also Linux is not monolithic and Init+runlevels is alive and well. Vote with your feet and choose a distro without systemd or at least init as an option. I'm sure Debian will keep init forever.

It could be for complications. Influenza causes inflammation, which itself creates a happy medium for bacteria in the lungs. It is standard practice to give antibiotics in severe cases of influenza. This does not help against the virus but helps lowering the risk of reinfections. See there.

That is like so easy, right? Putin did not enter into a treaty with a government, but with a country. The country is still standing. This Ukrainian government has dissolved the parliament and is holding elections. Putin does not want to wait for the outcome, he already knows they are not going to be favourable to the Russian side.
