migrating away from Systemd/Debian

reasons to migrate away from Systemd/Debian
www.nosystemd.org: "If this is the solution, I want my problem back."
Debian, once a fine operating-system, has mutated and degenerated into Systemd/Debian.
systemd is a virus.
systemd is the central nexus without which a Systemd/strain system cannot exist. It has such totalitarian control it apparently intercepts and blocks even Linux kernel panic keys and reboot command. When systemd fails -- FUBAR your computer will be.
The garbage came from amateur Windows-subverted Padawans, judging by their own manpages:
This author has been using FreeBSD since 2001.
A kernel ought to be just that, a kernel, the tiny core of the system. MINIX is a good example. MINIX-3 is semi-compatible with NetBSD.
Void Linux is unique, appears nicely polished, live images with variety of GUIs to try, installers for Raspberry Pi (specific to RPI1...RPI4). But have concerns after (supposedly) its founder vanished then project fell into stasis for some time (??).
Haiku (BeOS clone)
Linux or BSD kernel with
Or no operating-system?
A computer with FORTH has no need of an operating-system.
REJECTED alternative operating-systems
Tried Gentoo -- hit a SHOW-STOPPER.
Concluded time/effort would be better spent on LinuxFromScratch (LFS) instead of Gentoo.
Devuan developers don't do even the most basic testing!! Tried installing Devuan Beowulf. Selected runit as init system. But failed to install runit, because evidently they forgot to include runit-init package in installer. The whole purpose of Devuan is to offer choice of init systems, but they didn't bother to test that, unbelievable (head-smack).
[REJECTED] GNU Guix
Dilemma in Guix-1.3.0 installer: It will refuse to install anything unless connected to Internet, but it cannot connect to Internet because necessary drivers were hacked out of kernel for not being pure open-source (head-smack!).
Mac computers and MacOS (made after ~2010) are nothing more than you-pay cash-registers.
