Hello all. Today, I could come up with the following news(you can google "microsoft-canonical-bring-ubuntu-linux-on-windows-10". Sorry for not writing the link, since my karma is low...) As far as I understand, I guess it means that one can install sagemath in windows 10, directly - not using virtualbox.

In fact, in earlier versions of MS windows, like windows 7, it seemed that one should run virtualbox to run sagemath on one's computer. Maybe using cloud computing in sagemath homepage would be better, but I don't prefer that. When only considering using sagemath, it would be more convenient to use Linux. So, if the news is true, then I can directly download and install sagemath in windows 10.

Is my understanding correct? Or is there anybody who already tried this?

No. Not everything is working out of the box. See also this sage-devel thread.

It would be very good if SageMath were distributed via windows store as those Linux versions commented above. The usual installation of SageMath on windows is not so easy and the use of virtual box to load it is also problematic in some way, so this possibility would be useful and, furthermore, it would help to spread out the SageMath to the large amount of Windows users. With the introduction of the Windows 10S -- which is locked to the Windows Store and it is made to academic purposes --, this would allows students to install SageMath on those devices as well. I hope so much that the community of developers look at this!
