RPM : What is RPM – Red-hat Package Manager

RPM was developed on the basis of the Linux Standard Base (LSB).

RPM is available under the Free Software Foundation GNU General Public License.

Advantage: 

Advantages of RPM include straightforward program installation and uninstallation, automatic installation, ease of updating programs originally installed with RPM, and availability of versions for most distributions of Linux.

Limitation:

Limitations that have been mentioned include lack of backward compatibility or inadequate documentation for certain programs, and a relatively steep learning curve.
