Is there a list of distros that don't uses systemd ?

If you are referring to current and supported releases, this might be it:

Slackware



That would be strange to have to go back to slackware, but it that is it
that is it at least until all the small progrms that have been swallowed
up by systemd die of lack of support.


And that's precisely why SystemD is the wrong way to do it.

It's replacing small, separate programs, (which, although they have
different syntaxes for their configuration files, those syntaxes
are consisted with the needs of those daemons) with one giant
craptastic pile of monolithic Redmondism...with a "uniform" syntax
for configuration files, which is well-suited for absolutely NONE
of the services which are being swallowed up.

The separate deamons WILL survive in BSD... primarily because some
arrogant vandal like Sievert or Poettering won't be allowed to fuck
with things so needlessly.

You can try making your own clicking all the distro links on
http://distrowatch.com/ but it wouldn't surprise me if there were no others
in the top 40.

IIRC, 12.1 gave a default option to not use systemd. Mageia 1 didn't have it.
