    Going to have a rasberry pi 3b+(latest model i think) so even before having it i could use some help preparing what i could have on it i plan on doing simple tasks on it.


    1- What you would recommend as a media player that can shuffle and make playlist .

    2- Emulator not a priority but what should i get i got nes30 pro full of dust to use.

    3- I heard minecraft was playable ofc idc... but about server is that thing capable of running one?

    4- never add one so please give me some recommendation about some useful app i could use and web browser fast as ligtning.*(ad blocker too would be nice)

    It will be my main device for a while, gonna use it mainly for web browsing , methflix , and music ,transferring data to 3ds (maybe gaming on emulator) i will have the bundle PI 3+ with heat sink and 32 go sd 4 usb slot a case to put it inside and more , it have bluetooth and 1 go ram and a new 1.2 quad core !

    If you want it : https://www.amazon.ca/gp/aw/d/B01CC...erry+pi+3+&dpPl=1&dpID=61dV9TG0ViL&ref=plSrch

    Thanks in advance!

    1 - osmc

    2 - retropie

    3 - yes. it can run a small spigot server quite well.

    4 - midnight commander is a file explorer for the command line. extremely useful.

    also, it can run the pc version of minecraft (dont expect more that 15 fps).

    I prefer librelec as a media centre, alot better than osmc. And you can always install retropie as a plug in on libre

    oh, and your going to want to run diet-pi as your operating system, while using their custom overclocking features for the server and the game.

    osmc does have its flaws, but its MUCH more aesthetically pleasing.

    also, if you decide to set up a server, put all the eula file in your home dir. I never got it to work any other way.

    chromium is pretty much the only usable one (maybe firefox). as for adblock, I've never installed it on either of my three's.
