I suspect it's not a good idea to use Linux without systemd. For
example, by upstream udev is part of systemd. Maintaining Linux without
systemd is a bottomless pit.

I dislike this tone of voice. However, I agree that compiling the kernel
might be less effort, than migrating to another operating system. If you
would e.g. migrate to Arch Linux, you need to get used to systemd.
Getting used to systemd isn't pleasant. If you chose a Linux distro
that doesn't use systemd, you likely will experience all kinds of
trouble, if you want to customize your install.
