Memory Hungry in Windows

I have a program. It opens a text file about 2 MB. It reads in every
line and appends them to a string. It then does a re.sub() to replace the
contents of the long string and then write to a file.
In Linux, it consumes about 5 MB, but in W2k, it concumes 20 MB! Why
there is so much difference for the same piece of code? This has
frightened me that I don't know if the program will crash for no memeory
Thanks in advance.
