Win32 is the 32bit Windows/ReactOS subsystem responsible for executing x86 executables.

The Core of the Win32 subsystem is found in the following modules:

There are roughly 40 other libraries that make up the rest of Win32.

Wikipedia has a nice article with focus on the Windows API including details about the win32 module structure.
