Arch Linux on old laptop

Today i format my old laptop which has Slackware installed on it and i tried to install Arch Linux for the second time. I used to install Arch Linux in the past on the same laptop, but i moved back to Slackware after a while.

I want to test Arch Linux after they fully migrated to systemd and it was proven that systemd does makes it boot faster, but it also requires old users to learn again since it uses different concept of managing services. Unfortunately some applications still refer to the old rc.conf while the file is no longer exist in a new installation.

What i like from Arch Linux is their documentation. They are helpful so that even advanced users find it very useful. I wish that other Linux distribution can have such a great documentation project like Arch Linux
