Need suggestions for repurposing touch screen POS system

I recently acquired a point of sale computer/touchscreen from the dumpster outside my work. it runs fine for it's age, albeit it runs windows 2000 NT. 

My question to you: any brilliant ideas on what to use it for? it can run up to XP, or an equivalent version of linux. not much HDD space, and limited ram. so nothing intense. i just need an idea of what to do with it before the wife wants me to get rid of my "useless junk"

touch screen home bar...press a button, get a drink

can you use it as a controller for some sweet home automation

that was my first idea, but sadly my wife doesn't want me "teching" out the house. :(

Jukebox for living room or a recipe storage for the kitchen
