Quick correction (unless I'm misundertanding what you wrote here.) 

Esx(i) doesn't require a Windows server, only a Windows machine to run
the VIC or whatever they call the newer version of the client. 

(Much of the time, the client can be dispensed with by either using
vm-command and also some *limited* administration from a web brower.)

Note that there's a neverending thread on vmware forums for a Linux
client, and I believe it was finally promised in the Sept 2009--but I
could be really wrong with that date...

So, any decade now, I'm expecting it to be available.
