/etc/network/interfaces will still work -- and if it does what
you need, it's the best solution in many ways.
However, the default is NetworkManager, which attempts to handle
every conceivable situation automatically.
You can kill the NetworkManager process, apt remove it, and
write up an /etc/network/interfaces (or interfaces.d/* ) file,
reboot and be happy.
