That's possible with eCosPro, so may well also be possible with eCos. It's
hard to say for sure as our LPC2xxx port differs unfortunately. (I dare say
eCosPro is smaller though as we've put effort into that.)

No real chance with any OS. Even if you have an off-chip framebuffer it's
extremely unlikely. For the GUI itself, we've got a port of C/PEG, which
apparently uses about 12k which is really very small for what you get, but
that excludes the framebuffer and of course application UI requirements.
