I consider the initscripts messages being noticeable a bug, it means
that it boots too slowly.  I recommend removing the "you're booting into
a /libre/ version of Archlinux" message, I don't see any usefulness of

I believe changes like the following ones could be better for this:

- put the message in /etc/motd

- have Parabola themes for login managers emphasizing this

- editing the text above news on https://parabolagnulinux.org/

- having links to gnu.org in default browser bookmarks and in
  appropriate menus
