1 MB or 400 KB?

On the Wasabi web site, they claim a memory "footprint as small as 400KB." So where did the 1 MB number mentioned in this interview come from? The 400 KB number even claims to include kernel and userland. Maybe 400 KB is the "on disk" size and 1 MB is the runtime RAM size.

How small can embedded Linux or Windows CE get?
