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.
