    16-bit arc. - CPU registers are all 16 bits. Maximum memory to be accessed is 1Mb.

    32-bit arc. - CPU registers are mostly 32 bits. Maximum memory to be accessed is 4Gb.

    Also, 32-but CPU has internal task/thread manager - and 16-bit processor does not have it.

    Advancement is obvious - you can keep most of your application objects in memory instead of keeping them on disk.[/blue]
