Windows 2008 Standard vs Windows 2008 R2

What is the difference between Windows 2008 Standard and Windows 2008 R2?  Is it a free upgrade or a totally different purchased product?  Is the non-R2 product still available?

Just to answer the last question:

There exists both a Server 2008 Standard Edition and Server 2008 R2 Standard Edition.  Standard is only the package of features and functionality within the version of the operating system.
