Smile Is there a big difference between redhat linux 7.1-7.3?

Hello everyone,

I have an interactive course in redhat linux 7.1 administration. My question is if there is a big difference between redhat 7.1 and redhat 7.3? The reason I ask is that I can't find any version of 7.1 here (Denmark). Would the interactive course be useless if I use version 7.3? Hoping for an answer.

There's not a huge difference, no. Probably everything you learn for 7.1 will be relevant for 7.3.

I have used 5.1, 6.2, 7.1 and 7.3

Between 7.1 and 7.3 theres not much difference except that it has an improved compiler in 7.3 but the compiler can be made to work on 7.1.
Also 7.3 is newer kernel but that can also be made to work on 7.1
