Convert Vmware to Virtualbox EasyGuide

Useful reference for converting Vmware images to Virtualbox http://www.howtogeek.com/125640/how-to-convert-virtual-machines-between-virtualbox-and-vmware/.

The approach uses the ovftool executable from your VMPlayer or VM Workstation installation to create an OVF file, which is then imported to Virtualbox using the Import Appliance feature from the Virtualbox File menu.  The conversion to OVF file is reasonably slow, so you will have time to duck out for a steak and beer in between export and import.

The above link also discusses how to import Virtualbox images into VM Player or VM Workstation.
