XP Home vs. Pro vs. Embedded

Multiple simultaneous users is possible using terminal services under 
Windows Server 2003, but to the best of my knowledge, you can't do this on 
Windows XP Pro. (If there's a way to have a console user AND an RDP user 
under XP Pro, or multiple RDP users, please show me how.)

If you're using XP Pro and there's no warm body at the console, then VNC and 
RDP are pretty much equivalent.
