Well, you could get the either essentials bundle which are fairly
reasonable on price.  Another note on people using 5.5 in a stand-alone or
free version setup is that you should NOT upgrade the virtual hardware of
your virtual machines to version 10.  If you do then you can no longer edit
the virtual machine config using the client.  The 5.5 thick-client can not
edit virt-hw version 10.  It tells you to use vsphere web client.... which
if it is the free version, you don't have access to.
