I've been doing much the same research, Kourosh and have yet to find a definitive answer. As far as I can tell you have

Retail
Retail Upgrade
Corporate
Academic
Academic Upgrade
Volume Licence
OEM

not to mention the home and Media Centre Editions.

and I'm sure that there are others, too. I'm still trying to establish which version of Pro was installed on the IBM Net-Vistas that I have. The COA says "XP Professional 1 2CPU" but try as I might, I've not found a valid Pid code to accept the Product Key. I'm not sure what the "2CPU" bit is about 'cause the machines definitely only have one CPU.
