Hi Derek,

Nope, it is free.  Check out: http://www.vmware.com/products/esxi/uses.html

One thing to note, though.  It still needs approved hardware to install.
 At the moment, I have installed it into a VM within VMware Workstation
to achieve that.

I'll have to do some testing to see how performace suffers!  It might be
fine for a test environment, which is what I'm using it for.

Regards,
Greg
