Manjaro OpenRC Cheat Sheet

Amidst preparations for my third year at university, I've put together a sort of reference sheet to help me remember all the common commands needed when using Manjaro with OpenRC. It's not complete, but I'll continue to update it with various useful commands I stumble upon. You can find it below.

If you have any that you find useful, post a comment below! I'd love to see what you come up with - I might even add it to this list (crediting you of course)!
