That's what I'm leaning towards. I don't want systemd. I also am willing to consider other options, but that's what it seems I want.

In Linuxland, there are always Slackware and Gentoo. Outside of Linuxland, no systemd anywhere.
Honestly, you don't have to scare yourself away from Debian because of systemd. First of all you'll barley notice a difference in the first place, and user-services are pretty nice. Even if you tend to dislike systemd, debian offers plenty of other advantages (stability, package count, etc.). Other than that, maybe Devuan could be your thing.
Of course, there is always OpenBSD, like you said you were interested in. Installation (excluding disk encryption) takes about half an hour (maybe an hour if you're being slow, but as I said it took me about 5 due to writing random data to my slow hdd). The documentation is impeccable, everything works very well. I say go for it (I did, with no prior planning, and am not regretting it).

welcome to nixers.
