I just installed Ubuntu Server 20.04 in VMware and would like to install a GUI.  While I can work in command line, I am new to Ubuntu and mostly always work with Windows servers, so I would feel more comfortable if I could do some things in a graphic interface.

I read that Gnome and KDE use too many system resources, and I have a development machine with 1 CPU, 8GB of RAM and 240GB of storage.  Would it be OK for me to install Gnome or KDE or a more lightweight one and which one is most popular / works better?
