I booted four flavors of Ubuntu 11.10 beta 1 live CDs in VMs and ran
`free` to see the free memory right after the live CD was loaded.
Of course that's a silly measurement that doesn't mean much, but anyway
here's the RAM usage:

 ubuntu: 384 MB (unity-2d, the VM wasn't 3d capable)
kubuntu: 330 MB
xubuntu: 310 MB
lubuntu: 233 MB

It does however show that lubuntu is much lighter on RAM requirements
than the other 3 flavors.
