Just ordered one of these a few days ago. What should I make with it?
you could say that about literally any project. a pi2 will have a larger footprint on your mirror though.
if you don't do this, you will lose confidence and kill yourself. you have been warned
That sounds lame. Make a game specifically for its architecture and whatever lcd you can lay hands on and build a custom case. Isometric graphics and a leveling system and a procedurally generated dungeon that you have to try and get to the end of (there is no end)
It would be a cool project though. Like one of those old single-game lcd handhelds, but actually good. And you could add anime girls. How many roguelikes with anime girls are there? One arguably I guess but you get my point
I just realized, with the raspberry pi zero you could make an ip cam with pan and tilt for under 50 dollars. Add on 30 dollars more and you could make it wireless with like 4 hour battery. I suddenly want 10 of these
You would have IR lights on the rpi ip cam too considering you would just be using an off the shelf webcam. You would also have the added benefit of a ton of gpio pins for whatever you want and a faster computer with which you can run some computer vision algorithms on.
this is a ~2008 pc, still ok for gaming
i want my next pc to be a fanless baby sbc, i think by 2018 they may surpass picrelated
I don't get people like you.
Instead of having a project and buying the tool best suited for it, be it a raspberry, a uc or an fpga or whatever, you buy a tool without knowing what to use it for.
For what purpose?

great. The only appeal of the raspberry pi are the GPIO pins. Otherwise it's just a weak computer with limited peripherials (besides GPIO), so do something with that.

I disagree, the main appeal is the price and power consumption despite it being a full computer. If you just wanted some IO pins would could just buy an arduino or something, it's far better for that as the timing is more accurate.
Again it's better to use XP. You can't play new stuff on that PC, maximum is 2012-2013 games and even those would have low as shit FPS. On anything older XP will do fine and even faster.
Also It's still supported by MS, so you won't be left unsecured or with critical bugs.
music changes and everyone has the same access to be able to make music except that the roiland 808 costs like 5000 USD but still there are emulators
so even a joe can make music that competes with the coolest hip top 100, but games are different.
indie games never change in quality. there is only so much one guy can do. unless you think of a gimmick to add, it's just the same shit someone else has made 100 times already. for a roguelike, it's not even possible, every gimmick has already been made 20 times now. this is why you should not waste your time
