Yes, my experience has been similar, the virtual machines created in
the open source edition (OSE) worked fine in the closed source version

Also, in reply to Casey I don't think you have to use the special
utilities if you are carrying the VM from one physical machine to
another, I think that may just be used if you wish to duplicate a VM
to be used on the same physical machine. Again, that's just my own
experience (I have done both).
