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.
If you can't innovate, you just imitate, but it's never quite as good as the original.
