Relationship to Fedora - Amazon Linux 2023

Relationship to Fedora

AL2023 maintains its own release and support lifecycles independent of Fedora. AL2023 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 AL2023 isn't directly comparable to any specific Fedora release. The AL2023 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, chosen independently from Fedora.
