I am a Chilean girl, n00b Architect, who is studying Computer Science. I learned by myself X/HTML, CSS, some PHP, MySQL, LaTeX, and since 2008 I use Arch Linux. It's my favorite distribution and I doubt that one day I change to another. (Since 2001 I've tried Mandrake, LinEx, Ututo-e, Ubuntu, Kubuntu and Debian).
