Windows Microsoft released Vista Beta 2 for public consumption. It does not require a Key but will expire on June 1 2007. You can download the 3GB ISOs (or from here) for 32bit and 64bit architectures.

$ g++ -o parse -I /usr/include/boost-1_33_1/ -Os -g
$ ls -l parse
-rwxr-xr-x 1 libero Nessuno 5672196 Jun 8 17:40 parse
$ strip parse.exe
$ ls -l parse
-rwxr-xr-x 1 libero Nessuno 314368 Jun 8 17:41 parse

A 1800% increase in size sounds like "much space" more to me, indeed.

That's with cygwin, btw, so one can't say it's ELF's fault. Notice how it's compiled with -Os too.
