The compression method.

That is, they both contain the exact same archive information.

Your question is akin to asking what is the difference between filename123.ZIP and filename123.RAR

It is irrelevant which one you download.

Both archives contain the same files.

Any Windows program capable of extracting one of those archives is capable of extracting the other (7-zip, Winzip, etc.).

You probably want the Windows version, then.

cgminer-2.11.3-win32.zip
