How to change "gem (0.1.0-x86-minigw32)" to just "gem (0.1.0)"

I just pushed my first GEM up and suspect I may have done something incorrectly.
The GEM uses compiled code and I compiled it both on Windows and Linux and pushed them up.

The gem Name looks like "gemname (0.1.0-x86-minigw32)" when you search for the gem or go to the download page, but I would like to just have it show "gemname (0.1.0)". I am worried that users will not realize there is a Linux version as well when browsing.

A) Can this be changed?
B) What did I do wrong in the first place? (In the chance I push another GEM or to help someone in the future).

    You have to build it with the "ruby" platform then:
