Application vs system programming[edit]

Although logical–physical distinction is mentioned, it remains unclear, what means "to address sequentially all of the available memory locations" in the context of a multitasking memory-protecting operating system. The address space of an application process unlikely may be contiguous for some technical reasons. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 08:44, 10 April 2012 (UTC)

segmented memory model[edit]

I renamed this section as "x86..." because other systems, for example burroughs and Multics function differently and don't have the problems cited. Peter Flass (talk) 17:02, 3 September 2013 (UTC)

Paged memory model[edit]

I don' get why this is a "memory model" at all - it should be transparent at the application level. Peter Flass (talk) 11:56, 6 September 2013 (UTC)
