I think the Standard Edition is underrated, and could save the day quite often. 
It's just that most of us are used to EE and don't even think about SE when 
thinking about new projects... True, you get RAC, you loose all the packs, 
partitioning...
But quite often you can get around those limitations, there is even a product 
emulating DataGuard for SE (after all, SE has all the recovery stuff too, it's 
just missing the automation).
