OS Numbers..?

I wonder why on programs downloads for 32bit OS are tagged as "x86" while 64bit OS program downloads tagged as "x64",what does the "X" stands for and why the value of 32bit is bigger.

Simple x is the universal multiply sign and or BY sign.
So x32 is By 32 bits and or the program is a 32bit program. I hope you can figure out the other.

Right, x86 is a bit odd. x32 would be more logical. But that goes back in history to the Intel and IBM 386 and 486 times. The wiki that John linked will explain it.
