Don't give up friend, we have not lost! In addition to Devuan, there
are truly awesome no-SystemD distributions:

Artix (arch-based, with OpenRC), Nutyx (independent, SysVinit), Void
Linux (independent, with runit) - they have very fresh kernels and
packages while also being relatively stable! Really good if you want
the fresh drivers and mesa for gaming.
MX Linux - if you want a popular Debian-based no-SystemD distro that
actually surpassed Debian in popularity! (according to Distrowatch)

Just telling you that there are still enough oasises in this GNU/Linux
desert ;-)

I actually hope that someone will combine the features of my favorite
distros: something no-SystemD mentioned above as the base + QubesOS
hardcore virtualization for great security + ideology of Free Software
Foundation endorsed distros (remove all the closed source binaries
from a distribution, e.g. because they could contain the backdoors).
This is a distro of my dreams

Good luck.

May you keep the innocence and optimism of youth !
