I feel this page has no useful information. If someone has a more favorable opinion of it please speak up so I don't delete it. -Jhawthorn 01:20, 25 March 2007 (CDT)

Some background info on the MMU could be retained, the rest is just distracting petty talk. - Combuster 13:53, 25 March 2007 (CDT)

Should a page for the MMU be created, or would a section in Paging be enough? --Alboin
MMU is a wanted page. Some general information on the MMU should go there as it deals with more than just paging (read: x86 segmentation), while you can keep x86-specific things in Paging, pretty much like segmentation does it. Just remember, not all MMUs work like the x86's - Combuster 16:04, 11 July 2007 (CDT)
Okay. I wrote a short article on the MMU. I tried to make it as generic as possible, so I only include the two things that pretty much all MMU's I've read about do. That is, Memory Protection and Memory Translation. Is there any reason not to delete this article now? --Alboin
I've read over all the relevant articles. I see nothing here that isn't in another page. Yayyak 19:49, 15 September 2007 (CDT)
There is some basic info on the workings on paging (be it incorrect) for the x86 and sparc, which are not available elsewhere. The paging article is listed as a work in progress, and sparc-related pages are pretty much absent. In favour of retaining the knowledge I suggest dropping notes on the relevant (talk)pages before deleting the article. - Combuster 17:10, 16 September 2007 (CDT)
