Windows XP: How many different versions are there?

Because it's so confusing:
  • OEM
    • Usually sold with the computer
    • Certificate of authenticity usually says OEM
    • CD says "only for distribution with a new PC"
    • CD is branded by Dell or HP or etc
  • Retail (bought standalone from a store or if Windows CD says "Upgrade")
  • Branded (specifically branded by a big company)
  • Action Pack (part of MS Action Pack)
  • Volume License (licensed for multiple copies of Windows for a large business)
