A bare-metal virtualization for free

Yesterday, VMWare announced one of their products, VMWare ESXi, will be provide for free later next week.
Very interesting for whom want test, learn and work on a bare-metal virtualization software, hypervisor, for free.
This is a little bit different than VMWare Server, but also make a more robust and perfomant system. The main difference is about host OS, VMWare Server need one whereas VMWare ESXi don't need it - it's bootable -, however it required a dedicated machine.
A test should come soon here.
