When i was running Debian, i'd agree with you. In that distro you
enabled/disabled daemons with symlinks in the correct locations.
Arch uses /etc/rc.conf where you add or remove items from a single array.

Ok, to be honest; i haven't looked very deep into systemd, but so far
i don't really like it for my systems.

As for the learning part: good for you! Learning vi (basics) will be
really helpful.
