ESXi is free and can be administrated with the Virtual Infrastructure 
Client (also free and included in ESXi). You don't have to pay for a 
license to run ESXi or your virtual machines on it.

You only need to buy a license if you want to integrate ESXi into a VCenter.

So the only restrictions for ESXi are:

- you have to register to get a serial number

- you have to buy ESX(i)-compatible hardware
