the oem version you can only use once. if you were to ever change your mobo, you would have to buy another windows! the retail version you can use multiple times.

edit: under special circumstances you can activate it more than once, but only if your mobo was defective and you had to swap it out with the same board.

i bought an upgrade edition when it first came out. i upgraded windows xp to vista basic. so i believe it is when you already have windows installed on your rig, and want to upgrade to a different version.
