Appendix B. Glossary

16-bit In Windows, refers to the way memory is accessed. 16-bit applications access memory in 16-bit "chunks" (2 bytes). Most pre-Windows 95 applications are 16-bit.

32-bit In Windows, refers to the way memory is accessed. 32-bit applications access memory in 32-bit "chunks" (4 bytes). Large portions of Windows 95 and many of its new applications are 32-bit applications, and may run faster because it has become more efficient to access chunks of memory.
