For example, the Plex Media Server, NAS Server, or Transmission projects don’t need a monitor to be able to function.

How to Connect a Raspberry Pi to a Wi-Fi Network: So you want to connect a Raspberry Pi to the internet, but your computer lacks an ethernet connection, or you lack an ethernet cable. If you do, the Pi is now connected over WiFi. A Raspberry Pi is considered headless when you have no monitor or keyboard connected to it.
