I'd recommend the ESX3i if your server count is low (thus you won't need
Virtual Center, which is not free).  VMware works amazingly well, is
going to be around for the forseeable future, has excellent vendor
support, and a HUGE community of users.  And installation/setup is akin
to falling off the proverbial log.
