Which version do we recommend?  Unless your budget is so tight that you have to wait until next year to buy last year's server then go for the premium edition.  You get everything in the standard edition PLUS ISA Server, SQL Server and FrontPage for a song.  Just getting the protection of an integrated ISA Server alone is worth moving up to the premium edition.  You will find yourself using SQL Server and FrontPage just because you have them.
