Well they did relent and have the driver pack for linux now.  I have a couple 
linux vms (one desktop and one appliance) that seem OK, but I'm not a linux guy 
so who knows.

I run the Microsoft product, the free vmware server, and vmware workstation.  
They're all different in meaningless ways (for personal use).

Yeah, but it does some things very weird. Like eg not being able to run 
*nix-guests very good. At least this was the case before, maybe they've 
improved on this now...

The VMWare advantage with 64b hosts, is as far as I understand only true with 
VMWare *Workstation*, which is the only VMWare software that actually supports 
native 64b with native 64b executables and such. The free VMWare server et all 
doesn't. Or so I've heard.

a 64 bit host with 32 bit guests is the way to go.  You will be able to run 
more 32bit vm's more efficiently. The host has overhead and VMWare, Xen, etc 
were written to take advantage of 64 bit hardware.  Plus, you can cram it full 
of RAM which is where you will really see things perk up.
