What's the difference between a Retail and OEM license?

Of Windows 11, there are 2 types of licenses available, Retail and OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer). The difference between these two types is, that the OEM license can only be installed on new computers (there is no operating system on it yet). The retail version can be installed on computers that already have a Windows operating system installed (provided that they meet the minimum system requirements). With the Retail version it is so that there is always a "clean installation".
