Just one problem when dealing with an armhf or arm64 that u-boots. Short
of writing the image to the u-sd, then mounting it and editing that
image to delete the stuff, which is how I will do the next image I burn,
there is with the present method of assembling that image, no way to
prevent its installation. That build script needs a user usable editor.
But I've no clue if that script has ever been publicly shared.
I will be very interested in the armbian release, which apparently uses
xfce4, but I've not noted that they have an image for the armhf's. The
arm64 version running on a 4Gig rock64 is very impressive, at least 10x
faster than the pi. And so far stable. I only know of one app that will
crash it, amanda, the backup program. When the server touches it to get
an estimate, it locks up tight till a powerdown reboot. Stretch
