Each to their own. My Pis have been-

An NVidia Game Streaming game device.
Media Centre.
Desktop computer for old telly.
Syslog logging device for all computers and router.
Bird feeder webcam.
ADS-B aircraft receiver.
EDIT: And now this, too- Video of a Pi-driven scrolling LED matrix display!

Now I'm getting in to electronics I do fancy another Pi. I've got a Pi B+ and a Pi 2 B+, but I fancy a Pi Zero for electronics hacking stuff; HOWEVER, with the Zero, you need so many adapters it seems a bit silly, probably makes more sense to get a second hand B+ from somewhere if they're cheap.

Warm regards

PS To come is a webcam / web-operated marble run, with solenoids and things. No, I've no idea why either, but I think having no point is sometimes the point - learning to be a kid again and play with things for the sake of it. :-D

PPS DOH! I didn't realise it had two Micro USB connectors? So, one for a keyboard/mouse (or USB network adapter), and one for charging? So you'd just need a single USB-OTG adapter if you already had keyboard/mice and a PSU?

This is a great item. got one last time and i built a desktop arcade with it. wires and connectors cost barely nothing off ebay. ordered another this time round with no idea what to make with it! tempted to do the automatic plant watering tool that tests the temperature of the soil and waters it if needed.

then again i might make my old tv a smart one for the bedroom. oh the excitement!

For the pi 1 (model b) I originally used it as a kodi box until it was replaced by a firestick

I've since re-purposed it as a NAS box which also handles torrents & usenet downloads by hooking up a old USB hard drive and following a online guide. It's no where near as fast as the £100 odd NAS servers that get featured on here but it does the job. The moment they release a pi model with a gigabit ethernet port, I'm upgrading it.
Yay. Got one from here and pimoroni. Thanks
add a Micro USB to Network LAN Ethernet RJ45 Adapter with 3 Port USB 2.0 HUB Adapter a you have a Kodi capable solution for under a tenner!
and oos @ £4 again.

It's probably that because of the secure packaging costs.
It's literally a computer chip.

​I've written articles on how to install Wordpress on a pi (and host your own blog), how to install Owncloud (and host your own cloud), how to set up a simple picture gallary and more. And the whole site runs on a pi. Admittedly these are for the pi2, not a zero.

unixetc.co.uk

As you can see the pi is plenty fast enough for serving web sites.

I like the idea of using a pi zero for syslog/monitoring, but the lack of ethernet is a drawback.
Also look at Nodemcu £6, its like an arduino with wifi and can be programned with arduino ide same as normal arduino.
Oled screen are about 5 quid, and you can make weather info devices with nice graphics, see youtube for nodemcu weather widget

UK stores seem to charge between £10 and £20 for the nodemcu v2 and higher prices for the grove OLED and base board.
I'm afraid I was introduced via PIC and assembly and still have a soft spot for these slow old things.

Limited knowledge of these things but was reading of a combo ethernet/USB OTG solution for the Pi Zero a few days ago FWIW. They seemed to think it was a game changer.
