That sounds like you were not passing the correct parameters on the
kernel command line and the kernel couldn't find the systemd binary.
You'll need init=/bin/systemd

If you can attach a screenshot, that would help

And yes, GNOME will get a hard dependency on systemd, at least the parts
which require functionality from systemd.

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
