"Along with the termination of perpetual licensing, Broadcom has also decided to discontinue the Free ESXi Hypervisor, marking it as EOGA (End of General Availability).

Regrettably, there is currently no substitute product offered."

@malcolm-r Such a bummer! Definitely going to be interesting to see how many this is going to effect with home labs. Also, going to be interesting to see how VMUG will fare, price-wise, after the Broadcom shakeup.

Not a good day for VMware enthusiasts. Sad Sad Sad
