What Licenses to use when a 100% match is not found

I came across a couple items where the Dreamspark Key is either not available for a specific version of windows or a CSSIA supplied version was not the exact same version that Dreamspark gives the license key for, so I thought a forum thread with included database of known functioning but not 100% matching license keys. To start with, the two I am aware of:

Windows 8.1 Pro = Windows 8 Pro ; while slightly different Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 utilize the same Key base so this will work

Windows 10 ? = Windows 10 Education ; I cannot recall precisely the version supplied with the Windows 10 beta, but the Windows 10 Education key will work, and even add some additional features (so far I have not ran into any lab issues)
