VMware ESXi hypervisor is now freee, gratis, and for nothing!

Interesting thing, VMware have just announced that they will be offering their bare-metal (OS independent) server virtualisation system – ESXi hypervisor, for free.  It used to cost about 500$.


It can be downloaded from here, but as usual in these type of situations you have go to to the bother of registering first.  Still, on balance it will probably be worth bothering, and we are certainly looking forward to giving it a twirl!
