Is there a reason why there are no VMs for Sage after version 7.4? I run Sage on Windows so I depend on virtual machines.

FWIW the only reason is that the person who usually makes the VMs hasn't updated them yet. Have you tried the Docker images yet? It's generally a much more lightweight and seamless experience than using a full VM, though there may be some features missing--it depends on what you need.

EDIT (3 April 2017): The VM files for Sage 7.6 are ready at

Instead of the Virtual Machine, it is recommended to run Sage 7.6 in Windows via Docker:

To install Sage 7.6 image, do

docker pull sagemath/sagemath

Then run it via

docker run -it sagemath/sagemath

To run it in the Jupyter notebook:

docker run -p 8888:8888 sagemath/sagemath-jupyter

or in the Sage legacy notebook:

docker run -p 8080:8080 sagemath/sagemath sage -notebook

More details here.

Am I right that it would work only on Windows 10 x64?
