Removed unsourced text[edit]

I removed this text: "The memory is subdivided into segments. A segment in the x86 architecture can be from 1 byte to 4Gbyte long. It can start at any base address in memory. Each segment has a segment descriptor associated with it." It's unsourced, and per this discussion there is a significant concern about copyvios in unsourced material from the India Education Program.

Look out for possible copyright violations in this article[edit]

This article has been found to be edited by students of the Wikipedia:India Education Program project as part of their (still ongoing) course-work. Unfortunately, many of the edits in this program so far have been identified as plain copy-jobs from books and online resources and therefore had to be reverted. See the India Education Program talk page for details. In order to maintain the WP standards and policies, let's all have a careful eye on this and other related articles to ensure that no material violating copyrights remains in here. --Matthiaspaul (talk) 12:51, 31 October 2011 (UTC)

Section moved from article[edit]

I've moved the following text here from the article as it was almost completely unsourced; it also has some formatting problems which should be fixed if it's to be returned. I've enclosed it in a collapse template as it contains section headings. See WT:IEP for an explanation of the reasons for this proactive removal of information.
