2. Build a network of Raspberry Pis
The process of managing a network of Pi machines - say to use as thin client desktops - is about to get a lot easier with the Pi 3.
The Pi 3 adds the ability to boot directly from USB-attached or network-attached storage, without requiring boot information on the microSD card.
The addition of network booting will make it simpler to troubleshoot and reconfigure large numbers of Pis from a central hub.
The Pi 3's ability to boot from USB and network-attached storage will be enabled by a future firmware update.
