Arch and Slackware
Are Arch and Slackware similar? More specificaly in the area of Slackware being the most unix like operating system and its init scripts?

They probably are. Arch is very similar to Crux, and Crux is so like Slackware that many people think it is a fork of it, though it's actually an independent development.
The init scripts come from BSD Unix whereas most Linux distros use System V initialisation. But System V is also Unix and is much older than Linux."I'm just a little old lady; don't try to dazzle me with jargon!"

They are also similar in the fast that there is no 'hand holding' going on with either one of them.
Changes and customizations are typically handled by editing config scripts, not by a GUI tool.
