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
