Aware of it.  Also mx-16 is a systemd-free distro put together by former
Mepis and AntiX people.  Unfortuantely, both are based on Jessie and
there's been no hint of a Stretch-based release.

The reason I want the most current "stable" release is I choose
everything -- hardware and software -- for a 5 to 7 year lifetime.
For example, this system: I originally built it 10 years ago and even
with the numerous upgrades since the newest part, a hard drive (original
one still good), is still 3 or 4 years old.  So, I need an OS that's
going to have support for at least 5 years.  And I don't like rolling
releases -- too many potential problems.

Thanks anyway for your recommendation.
