How to get started with Linux: A beginner’s guide

The world of Linux is ready to welcome you, with a shower of free open-source software you can use on any PC: hundreds of active Linux distributions, and dozens of different desktop environments you could run on them.

Nikon D850 review | TechRadar

The Nikon D850 is finally here. After months of speculation, and Nikon itself teasing us back in July that the camera actually existed and was in development, the D850 has been officially announced – and boy, does it look like it’s been worth the wait. Superseding the brilliant 36.3MP D810 that’s loved by both pros and enthusiasts alike, the D850 certainly has big shoes to fill.
