Hi Larry,

I tried many non-systemd distros at the beginning of this year.  I eventually 
settled on:

MX Linux
MX Linux is a cooperative venture between the antiX and former MEPIS 
communities, using the best tools and talents from each distro. It is a 
midweight OS designed to combine an elegant and efficient desktop with simple 
configuration, high stability, solid performance and medium-sized footprint.

My primary two reasons were:

- Well supported by a large development staff. (30+)
- Extremely large and helpful user community. (forum users ~7,000)

It has been a very good experience.  I let Xfce 4.12.3 install by default and 
then added TDE by:

MX Linux Trinity Repository Installation Instructions *

This will give you a list of default apps and tools:

Hope that helps,
