x32 vs. x86

Postby XnTriq » Thu Mar 02, 2017 10:45 pm

32-bit Windows edition → HelpAbout: “XnViewMP Version 0.84 x32 (Jan 12 2017)”

Shouldn't it say “x86” instead of “x32”?

Well, I think that it really should say what it is - no IT acronyms involved:

“XnViewMP Version 0.84 32 bit (Jan 12 2017)”

“XnViewMP Version 0.84 64 bit (Jan 12 2017)”


I am quite reserved that our target knows about what x86 and x64 means and their differences.

Yes, clearer, but better with hyphens:

32-bit

64-bit
