Can I use ubuntu only with a WM, without any DE so less resources are used

This guy in the video using gentoo and his system is using only 46mb RAM because he doesn't have any Desktop Environment, he is only using a Window Manager 'DWM'.

I have a very old pc with just 2GB RAM and I use ubuntu on that. Can I do that thing on Ubuntu.

The short answer is [you can install `dwm` on a Ubuntu release]( I would not be optimistic about getting memory consumption down to 46MB of RAM, though. There are many reasons for a system to use memory aside from the GUI. That said, what are the hardware specs of the “very old PC”? Depending on what is under the hood, you may be able to use one of the lighter flavours of Ubuntu

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
