    when running 64bit windows, open task manager goto process tab, there will be a list of 32 bit apps currently running...

    bits : width of path ( 16, 32, 64, 128,256, 288, 384, 512, etc )

    ex. sdram 100 > 128mb/32bit - meaning 128mb ang capacity travelling in a 32bit width path from the north bridge AKA MCH to the processor

    : Windows Vista Ultimate Edition x86 Oem
    Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate X64 OEM

    x86 : comes in 2 flavors -32 / 64

    pentium4 : x86 ( denotes the architecture < 386,486, 586 blah blah )-32( bit )

    Athlon64 : x86-64( bit )

    x86 is the architecture of the CPU which i guess started way back from 8086 (8bit,16bit) MP ... again x86 architecture now comes with 32bit and the 64bit version ... but again back to your question ... a 64bit MP can actually run 32 bit apps and OS so basically Im not sure how to identify what Windows version is currently running ...

    Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate X64 OEM -> This is the 64 bit OS version

    Most applications that labeled x86 are mostly for 32bit machine generally for x86 architecture. Applications for 64 bit are identified using the attaached postfix "EM64" mostly. There are also postfix like IA64 which is intended only for Intel Itanium processors.

    In linux using the command "file <executable file>" will identify what type of executable the binary apps is. I don't know the equivalent in Windows.
    Actually you can install 32 bit OS on 64 machines, but depending on OS installed, if you installed 32 bit OS on 64 bit machine, only applications binaries built for 32bit are compatible, 64bit apps won't work. But if you installed 64bit OS on 64 bit machine, only 64 bit applications will work.
