+1, and will do so on an even older, B1: https://www.cpmspectrepi.uk/raspberry_p ... cTest.html
Trev.
Still running Raspbian Jessie or Stretch on some older Pi's (an A, B1, 2xB2, B+, P2B, 3xP0, P0W, 2xP3A+, P3B+, P3B, B+, and a A+) but Buster on the P4B's. See: https://www.cpmspectrepi.uk/raspberry_pi/raspiidx.htm

Yes.

Raspbian Buster is suitable for ALL Raspberry Pi SBC and Compute Module.

Though the Lite version, no desktop, would be recommended.
