64 Bit Windows Socket APIs

When you hear the term “64 bit Windows Socket APIs,” what is being referenced is just the 64 bit Winsock.  The longer phrase is merely a throwback to when programmers were still fighting the newer Winsock name.  Many refused to call Winsock anything but Windows Socket API – this actually caused a problem with online documentation for awhile until the majority of programmers realized that the issue really wasn’t worth it.  Here at Komodia, you can call 64 bit Windows Socket APIs anything you want – Komodia knows what you mean.
