VMware ESXi is now free

Link: Get a free license for VMware ESXi

From the page: "Get a free license for VMware ESXi and build virtual machines in minutes with this easy-to-deploy, OS-independent hypervisor.

Features & Benefits
Virtualize processor, memory, storage and networking resources into multiple virtual machines with VMware ESXi, an enterprise-class hypervisor with a thin 32 MB footprint for added security and reliability.

VMware ESXi is the virtualization platform customers build upon for continuous application availability and infrastructure security. With VMware Infrastructure 3, customers can add the benefits of server consolidation, automatic load balancing and business continuity to ESXi."


In case you haven't heard, there is a show-stopper bug with the current release of ESX and ESXi.

A patch has been released, but if you are downloading the free product for the first time, I suggest you wait until August 14 as the from-scratch installation file will be refreshed tonight.
