Meh, I can't download them, so when I've got 20 for shipping, I'm going to order Standard, Enterprise, and Web Server.

Our internet is being very slow at the moment, because of maintenance upgrades at the ISP end.. so we're getting like 32kb/s down speeds, would take days.

Which version should I get? Standard, Enterprise, or Datacenter? I assume they go in order from least amount of features ot most, since standard is at the bottom...

Standard will do you fine, the other 2 are for massive companies and support tons of processors etc, which you wont need at home.

Enterprise is better to get, only difference is licensing. Enterprise is what you would use as a domain controller or something. Standard more for terminal servers, running applications, etc.

Yeah I gave that one a play too. It was running perfectly, except for gaming. A GPU controller update would have made it run forever good.
