    Please clarify.

    Should all RISC based microprocessors boot from the bottom of their memory space?

    Should all CISC based microprocessors boot from the top of their memory space?

    Apart from protection to the Boot Block, what are the other differences between the Boot Block based Flash memories and Normal Flash Memories (Uniform Block Flash Memory)?
