Yes, you can install any desktop environments (LXDE, XFCE, MATE, Cinnamon).
There is a tutorial for it in this forum.

Yes.


Or you could start with the Raspbian Buster with desktop installation, which gives you the standard Raspberry Pi Desktop GUI but no other software applications.

Code: Select all

sudo apt update
sudo apt install raspberrypi-ui-mods

Should get the "Raspberry Pi Desktop" Desktop Environment.
