ESX is not based on linux at all. ESX(not ESXi) includes
a service console that is based off of RHEL-3 though
that is for management only, virtualization runs entirely
within the hypervisor which is transparent to the user.

There is also a linux compatibility layer I believe for
drivers.

ESXi did away with the service console concept almost
entirely.
