This question is like what do you prefer?

Wordpad or Word?

Both are useful, just for different things. So one would probably end up using both.

Would you it-central-stationeers stop with this nonsense already?

if it is for business or enterprise-class virtualization, vSphere solution is the way to go. 

Workstation is used for lab.

Both are VMWare products.

simply v-sphere is a hypervisor Tier-1 technology stack

VMWare workstation is a desktop release installed on windows or Linux OS

if your requirement is limited need few VMs for testing purpose you can go for Workstation.

but if you need production VMs you need a separate independent hardware server for v-sphere esxi hypervisor.
