There must be a very good reason why we complicated our lives with all these technologies ... arguably that is freedom for something. Freedom might be a right but it is never free; so let me demonstrate how I earned it.

UserType and License Types in Salesforce
Salesforce has a few different license types, which you can clearly see from under the Company Info section. However to process user records based on license types it's less straightforward. There's a UserType field on the User object, which is related to license types not in a clear one-to-one way (see below for mapping).
A better way to get to license type is through relationship Profile.UserLicense.Name on User, which contains the exact labels you see from the User Licenses section.
