Linux user since 2001, when in the 7th Grade I installed Mandrake 8.1 on an old Desktop. I have since moved between Fedora, Debian, Gentoo, and finally Ubuntu. I have been a recreational Programmer since 2004, Professionally since 2006. I have been working with Embedded Linux (ARM) since 2007, developing software on a debian derived OS for our platform. I have been employed since 2008 as an x86 developer and lead architect at a small company. I have since moved to research since September of 2008, in what can be referred to as AI ( Decentralized Algorithms and Emergent Behavior ). Currently an undergrad with a declared CS Major.
