    In a nutshell

    VMWARE GSX doesn exist anymore. It is replaced by VMWARE Server which is free.
    VMWARE server is a free virtualization software that run on a Windows Server platform. Good for testing and smaller environments

    VMWARE ESX
    Is the Hypervisor from VMWARE.

    It has its own OS, so can not be installed upon Windows. But must be installed on the server itself. It uses it own file system: VMFS.
    Has really nice features like Vmotion, HA and resource groups.

    The virtualization technology for the Enterprise.
