Hello everyone, I'm an IT student from Greece.
I recently switched to Arch from Debian/Ubuntu, so far it's been a joy using the OS (the package manager is really awesome)
I am however relatively new to Linux and have therefore a vague understanding of its' function. One thing I noticed was the "init 3 Excess arguments" message. I would like to know more about it, I know there are 5-6 runlevels but how are they implemented in the Arch kernel and most importantly how can they be invoked ?

Probably you know it, but Arch does not use init anymore.
Arch uses Systemd. That error *I think* is because systemd is not runnig with pid 1. Not sure.
About switching runlevels on systemd, read this: http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Softwar … dQuestions
"open source is about choice"
Open source is about opening the source code complying with this conditions, period. The ability to choose among several packages is just a nice side effect.
I didn't know that. Thanks for the update Chris, I'll have a look.
