I recall running Haskell-like programs (compiled by Gofer, the  
predecessor of Hugs) on a machine with 256Kb of memory, back in the  
early 1990s.  They were smallish programs of course.  The interpreter/ 
RTS was about 50Kb, the bytecode for the program took up a few Kb, and  
there was about 100Kb of stack and heap combined, so I was not even  
using the full capacity of the machine.
