VirtualBox will read VMWare "vmdk" disk image files.  It will not
import nor use the whole VM.  You have to make a new VM in VirtualBox
and attach it to the vmdk disk image and then it works just perfectly.
 I'd say the vmware format is just fine.  Just be sure to delete any
"snapshots" in your VMware before distributing it.
