Does it matter if we are using an older version of eclipse?

It won't matter much for the parts of Eclipse that we use, though it is nice to match the version we have in the labs.

To use Eclipse, you will make a "workspace". A workspace made in a newer version of Eclipse cannot be opened in an older version. You will be able to copy the program file (ie. .java file) from a project on your laptop, however, and import it into a project in a workspace for the version of Eclipse on a lab computer.

The terms workspace and project will make more sense after Lab1.
