Disk Utility & iStat Menus in ML

I upgraded to ML with no problems. The whole process took about an hour, I think. But, it was fine. However, I noticed that in my disk display in iState menu showed a pretty considerable difference between used and unused disk space. This confuses me since I'm not sure which to believe. I read/thought ML was already compatible with iStat menus.

Here's a screen shot showing the difference in unused/used space between my SSD from Disk Utility and iStat Menus.

Maybe you are confused at Disk Utility using Gigabytes (1GB = 1000 MB) and iStat Menus is using Gigibytes (1 GiB = 1024 MiB) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gibibyte

OS X started using GB since Snow Leopard, to avoid confusion for novice users as it's what storage manufacturers use.
