But the ESXi version isn't exactly fair to someone who would deploy on the 
hardware intended.  Also, the restriction to 1 CPU isn't built-in - there's a 
place where you select the number of CPUs you will use when you are registering 
for the free license.  I don't know what the actual maximum is, but it is at 
least 2 with a fairly large number of cores.
