The bit (a portmanteau of binary digit) is a basic unit of information used in computing and digital communications.
Canonical Ltd. is a UK-based privately held computer software company founded and funded by South African entrepreneur Mark Shuttleworth to market commercial support and related services for Ubuntu Linux and related projects.
IA-64 (also called Intel Itanium architecture) is the instruction set architecture (ISA) of the Itanium family of 64-bit Intel microprocessors.
An instruction set architecture (ISA) is an abstract model of a computer.
In computer science, an integer is a datum of integral data type, a data type that represents some range of mathematical integers.
Intel Corporation (stylized as intel) is an American multinational corporation and technology company headquartered in Santa Clara, California, in the Silicon Valley.
The Intel 80386, also known as i386 or just 386, is a 32-bit microprocessor introduced in 1985.
The Intel 80486, also known as the i486 or 486, is a higher performance follow-up to the Intel 80386 microprocessor.
As the 32-bit Intel Architecture became the dominant computing platform during the 1980s and 1990s, multiple companies have tried to build microprocessors that are compatible with that Intel instruction set architecture.
A microprocessor is a computer processor that incorporates the functions of a central processing unit on a single integrated circuit (IC), or at most a few integrated circuits.
An operating system (OS) is system software that manages computer hardware and software resources and provides common services for computer programs.
The first Pentium microprocessor was introduced by Intel on March 22, 1993.
A page table is the data structure used by a virtual memory system in a computer operating system to store the mapping between virtual addresses and physical addresses.
The Pentium Pro is a sixth-generation x86 microprocessor developed and manufactured by Intel introduced in November 1, 1995.
In computing, Physical Address Extension (PAE), sometimes referred to as Page Address Extension, is a memory management feature for the x86 architecture.
In computer science, a pointer is a programming language object that stores the memory address of another value located in computer memory.
In computer architecture, a processor register is a quickly accessible location available to a computer's central processing unit (CPU).
A programming language is a formal language that specifies a set of instructions that can be used to produce various kinds of output.
In computing, protected mode, also called protected virtual address mode, is an operational mode of x86-compatible central processing units (CPUs).
Real mode, also called real address mode, is an operating mode of all x86-compatible CPUs.
In computer science, a stack is an abstract data type that serves as a collection of elements, with two principal operations.
A stack register is a computer central processor register whose purpose is to keep track of a call stack.
Transmeta Corporation was an American fabless semiconductor company based in Santa Clara, California.
VIA Technologies Inc., is a Taiwanese manufacturer of integrated circuits, mainly motherboard chipsets, CPUs, and memory.
In the 80386 microprocessor and later, virtual 8086 mode (also called virtual real mode, V86-mode or VM86) allows the execution of real mode applications that are incapable of running directly in protected mode while the processor is running a protected mode operating system.
x86 is a family of backward-compatible instruction set architectures based on the Intel 8086 CPU and its Intel 8088 variant.
x86-64 (also known as x64, x86_64, AMD64 and Intel 64) is the 64-bit version of the x86 instruction set.
32-bit microcomputers are computers in which 32-bit microprocessors are the norm.
