78 linux distributions without systemd listed on Distrowatch

Other than our complete list of distributions without systemd we run a search on Distrowatch for all “linux” distributions without systemd and we came up with a list of 78.  Sorry to BSD fans, we have nothing against BSDs we just can’t cover it all and we restrict our focus on linux systems.  There were cases in the past where information is not as accurate or up to date on distrowatch so beware of its results (as of 10/14/2018).
