    You do not get into your head what is debian, I doubt that it has xfce 4.16, because it is not the philosophy of debian stable and it is the same desktop version as in testing and in life it has been seen that debian stable and debian testing use the same desktop version.

    Debian stable will carry, xfce 4.14 and of course it will not carry the kernel 5.10, as you have stated on more than one occasion, it will carry the 5.4 is a tried and tested kernel, 5.10 has been out for 4 days, as well as xfce 4.16 and that is not how debian works , it works, with tested and failed things, as is the case with xfce 4.14.

    And the release cycle of debian is not this program, it is more or less, but more or less, every two years, but the philosophy of debian is that it will be when it is, it can be 2 years, 2 years and three months, etc.

      Greetings, nonono. Thank you for your comment and contribution. All the data provided have their respective links to the official sources of the Debian Organization from where they were taken. However, thanks to your observation, we add greater precision regarding the possible release date. And about the package versions, such as the Kernel and XFCE, those are the versions mentioned in the official link attached in the article.

      SISISI, Debian 11 carries XFCE 4.16:

      GNOME 3.38
      Xfce 4.16
      LXDE 10
      MATE 1.24

      1.    Linux PostInstall said

        Greetings, Arangoti. Thanks for your comment. Certainly, as its official source says that will be the XFCE version. In a few months or a maximum of 1 year, when said final stable ISO is released, that version will be very solid and available for Debian 11 Bullseye.

    You have installed standard system utilities and xfce but what is debian desktop environment?
    it is necessary?

    1.    Linux PostInstall said

      Greetings, Brainlet. Thanks for your comment. That option is checked by default, when using the DVD ISO, but next to the GNOME option. In other words, I assume that it is a «Root Category» that is activated because it is assumed that any Desktop Environment will be installed, and that is why it comes with GNOME, checked by default. In my case, I unchecked GNOME and put XFCE. It was the only change I made on that screen.

    2.    Linux PostInstall said

      If you look closely at "The Debian Administrator's Handbook" (Debian HandBook - ) in chapter “4.2.17. Selection of packages for installation »this option previously checked by default is shown. Possibly if it is not indicated in Desktop Environment, the installer should install XFCE, which is supposed to be the default DE for Debian 10. And if you check any other or more together, then that will be the one or those indicated to be installed.
