Trying to get a handle of the differences between windows server 2008 r2 and the web edition.

I'm using it for a website, so IIS7 and sql server express.

The application is asp.net mvc.

What exactly do I gain with going with standard edition over web?

Lone link is considered a poor answer (see faq) since it is meaningless by itself and target resource is not guaranteed to be alive in the future. It would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. –  j0k Mar 1 '13 at 8:48
