forum.pine64.org/showthread How to write image to emmc module on the pinebook
Luke - Moderators
You could in theory write an image directly to eMMC by putting the unit in FEL mode and using ayufan’s boot tools. But the easy way is to use the pine installer to flash the desired image to an SD, insert the SD into the pinebook, and follow the instructions to flash the image to eMMC.

Debian Desktop Notes
LXDE is designed to work well with computers on the low end of the performance spectrum such as older resource-constrained machines, new generation netbooks, and other small computers.
No extra configuration needed for GDM / KDM / LightDM: just simply select the LXDE option at the login screen menu.
The MATE Desktop Environment is the continuation of GNOME 2. It provides an intuitive and attractive desktop environment using traditional metaphors for Linux and other Unix-like operating systems.
MATE is under active development to add support for new technologies while preserving a traditional desktop experience. See the Roadmap The MATE Manifesto outlines some of the principles that guide the project.

Xfce is a lightweight desktop environment for UNIX-like operating systems. It aims to be fast and low on system resources, while still being visually appealing and user friendly.
Xfce is a lightweight desktop environment for Unix-like operating systems. It aims to be fast and lightweight, while still being visually appealing and easy to use.
Xfce is based on GTK+ version 2 (like Gnome 2). One of Xfce’s priorities is adherence to standards, specifically those defined at freedesktop.org. This allows Xfce to seamlessly interoperate with programs written for other desktop environments, if those programs follow the specified standards.
Xfce consists of a number of components that together provide the full functionality of a desktop environment. They are packaged separately and you can pick and choose from the available packages to create the best personal working environment.
