The SageAppliance is a virtual appliance to run SageMath in a virtual machine.

For a long period of time, this was the only way to use SageMath under Windows.

Note that since Sage 8.0, there is also a native SageMath installer for Windows, thanks to the work of Erik Bray (funded by OpenDreamKit, the Horizon 2020 European Research Infrastructures project #676541).
