I of course can use whatever I want because I'm not a big company, so I use
ESXi 3.5 on a my 32 bit server, and it works very well.  On my 64bit server,
I'm worried that ESXi 4.0 will not work, but I need 64 bit VMs (thanks
Novell <heehee>), so I'm running Server 2.0 on that for the 64 bit VMs.  So,
my take is that unless you need to actually have 64 bit VMs for something,
3.5 has been perfectly fine for my needs, which aren't as great as many
large companies, but greater than most of my small company clients.
