Have you looked at Devuan? Debian, but with the systemd parts pulled out.
FWIW, I've used Ubuntu on my desktop for a while now (because it
actually supports the latest Nvidia drivers, makes it easy to install
non-FOSS software, isn't the flaming pile that RedHat produces, etc),
and put up with systemd (which I mostly ignore, but I am not happy
with), but have never touched Unity. There are other working window
managers on it (Xfce is what I tend to use, since I started having
issues with KDE).
