Flat address space
<architecture> The memory architecture in which any memory location can be selected from a single contiguous block by a single integer offset.
Almost all popular processors have a flat address space, but the Intel x86 family has a segmented address space.
A flat address space greatly simplifies programming because of the simple correspondence between addresses (pointers) and integers.
