Win = Microsoft Windows 32 = 32 bit machine. So Microsoft Windows for a 32bit machine (Intel P4 etc). You also have Win64 for 64 bit machines (Intel Core 2) and Win16 (old windows for 286s). You can run Win32 on 64 bit machines (currently quite common as many drivers hare not ported over to Win64).

It also means the Windows API (Application Programmer Interface). This is a set of methods, types and classes Microsoft Windows provides to alow applications to run on it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_API

I heard from one of my friend like this. It was the language that Microsoft is used to develop all windows 32 bit softwares. I had seen the same language in his office too. Thank you. Your PC could be a cash machine. Look at my profile to know how.
