metadata.db same?

Across platforms, is metadata.db the same?

I have a Win7 PC and a MacBook Pro. If I install the Mac version of Calibre can I use the same database from the Windows version or do I have to reimport the library? One option is to run Win Calibre under VMWare but I'm curious to see if the metadata.db file is interchangeable.

TIA

Yes the metadata.db file is the same regardless of the OS that Calibre is running on for a given calibre release.

A point to note is that the format changes slightly for the 0.6 series of Calibre so you cannot share it between a 0.5.x and a 0.6.x release of calibre
