Hello all!  This is more a opinion question.  Here it is!  I finally bought my first rasberry pi 3b model.  I plan on putting raspbian on it.  What would you do with this?  Make it a media server?  Make it a NAS?  There are so many options and I have only read about a few.  Cant wait to hear everyone's thoughts!

This isn't for the 3 but it should give you an idea of what it can do.

If you just google "raspberry pi projects" there a tons of them out there. Also a good way to waste a couple hours! So many interesting ones out there. I have two of them, though currently they just sit in a box. I was playing with making one a retro gaming station. Was thinking about buying a broken N64 off ebay and stripping it then popping in the Pi. They also just came out (not too long ago) with the "zero". Stupidly small. Some people have done some really cool stuff with that!

My ideas:
Teamspeak/mumble server if you game
Znet automated home server
