This was a great tip, thank you. I wasn't aware that ESXi is a bare metal and free.

I am not fanatic about FreeBSD, but I feel very comfortable with it and I resist change. However your ESXi tip would allow me to run ESXi on bare metal and virtualize simple installations of the "unpleasant" legacy OSes without making my fingers too dirty.

Thank you very much,
