4. Boot up Android or Chrome OS' open source cousin
From Android to Chromium OS, the Pi 3 looks destined to run a broader range of operating systems than its predecessors.
The Pi already runs a suite of Linux-based operating systems but is seemingly on the cusp of getting versions of Chromium OS - the open source version of Chrome OS - and Android Marshmallow that are comfortable to use.
The reasons are twofold - both the increased power and more modern architecture of the Pi 3 and a new open-source 3D graphics driver for the board that will make it easier to implement hardware-accelerated versions of these systems. Together these changes should help deliver operating systems that until now have been hampered by poor performance on the Pi.
