Right, so when the speed of linked lists in C vs C++ is the same, however the code bloat due to STL is 200K extra (and grows in proportion to the number of linked list objects in use), you call this a bad excuse not to use STL?

Now take this code size overhead and multiple by the number of different containers in use and the number of container instances and you end up with a hefty bloat.
