Relationship to Fedora - Amazon Linux 2022

Amazon Linux 2022 is in preview release and is subject to change.

Relationship to Fedora

Amazon Linux 2022 maintains its own release and support life cycles independent of Fedora. Amazon Linux 2022 provides updated versions of open-source software, a larger variety of packages, and frequent releases. This preserves the familiar RPM-based operating systems.

The Generally Available (GA) version of Amazon Linux 2022 isn't directly comparable to any specific Fedora release. The Amazon Linux 2022 GA version includes components from Fedora 34, 35, and 36. Some of the components are the same as the components in Fedora and some are modified. Other components more closely resemble the components in CentOS 9 Streams or were developed independently. The Amazon Linux kernel is sourced from the long-term support options that are on kernel.org, chosen independently from Fedora.
