Hmmm...might have to revist this topic under Windows 7 to see if there are not as many hardlinks as MS led people to believe. If there are legit files in C:\windows\winsxs..they would take space. But my understanding was that these files were Mostly (80%+) hardlinks. However, ctts.exe seems to say otherwise...as it shows my 5.8GB of C:\windows\winsxs consists of only 75MB of hard links and 5.7GB of actual files. Most everything I have read in the past was reverse of this in Technet...meaning 75MB of files with over 5GB of hard links.
