Difference between 6 vs 7 vs 8

Latest response

G'day all,

Just wondering if there is a sheet that explains the difference between these 3 products?

Thank you.


Hi Philip Alex,

Here is part of the answer. That link shows the differences between RHEL 6&7.

And this link show considerations in adopting RHEL 8.



A bit more on differences between 7 & 8 here.

Also examine the release notes for each one. Yes, the release notes are a bit of a read, but it will give you good info. These three links are for the documentation/release notes for 6, and 7, and 8.

One severely difference between RHEL 6 and anything above it is systemd which began with RHEL 7 and continues of course to RHEL 8.



Thank you for your reply :)
