1 - About

This section is about the implement of memory by the OS called the virtual memory, a layer of memory management above physical memory

Conceptually speaking, there are only three types of memory:

  1. Kernel memory: memory needed by the OS to manage itself
  2. Private memory: memory used by user programs
  3. Shared memory: memory that can be used by multiple programs simultaneously
