Windows Server 2008: Enterprise or Standard?

Last Modified: 2013-11-11
I want to know if there is any reason to choose Enterprise over Standard when designing a virtual machine infrastructure?  I have checked the microsoft website with the chart listing the differences and I am leaning toward Standard yet was wondering if I would be limited when it comes Hyper-V and if there is a clear cut advantage that Enterprise has over Standard.
