Me on Windows XP. I'll get Windows 7 in a couple of weeks.

I'm not associated with any institute or university but with a company which does not offer services of this kind to its employees - unless I can convince people that this kind of activity increases the visibility of the company in computer science departments in Germany (which they are always interested in to get more applications from C.S. masters).

I've been putting off looking at SAGE's requirements for a couple of months. At the moment I'm using a netbook (single core Atom, 1.5 GB memory) which obviously isn't a high-power machine. Does anyone have any experience of whether SAGE is usable on such a machine? (Looking at the list of components, hopefully if it demand loads stuff.)

If I do install SAGE (either on my netbook or possibly a more powerful machine), it'll be some flavour of linux (probably ubuntu).

the first linux I used was an HP notebook running XP which one of the marketing guys was trashing. I installed Mepis 8 on it and the compiled Sage and had it running Sage . I think it was 733Mhz. I mainly used it to learn Sage ,create notebooks for books I was reading and one class I took last fall i used it for handing in homework . But the next is only a tad bigger .

But that doesnt answer your question. Sage requires 2Gb disk storage for Linux, so if u have 1.5gb ram you are fine.william stein is also trying to get to run on smaller boxes, so u see his blog or ask on Sages askbot .

I was looking around today and there might be a single .exe available. I will try it out because Linux is OK but I think it takes a bit too much effort to get running on Windows, I have it running on one Windows 7 right now with VMWare player and it works. But you have to do several steps. So right now I am running on two of the "clouds" demo.sagenb.org and www.sagenb.org. But they are heavily loaded at times. So I think it is good to have it locally installed as a "backup" and availability option.

I am also following what happens with Sage-Grid which intends to put Sage on cluster,one is the eu grid and the coming enhancements to the notebook web i/f. The idea is to make it more scalable by using Flask. Flask is here on githhub

I might be able to get people at the CQT to install Sage for me. Not sure they'd be willing to use one of their servers to make it publicly available. I can try to get folks at UCR to do that - if not soon, certainly by the time I get back and get grants for the Azimuth Project.

sounds like a good idea to wait until you are back to UCR. Then we might also have reached a more detailed conclusion on how and when to use it

About the smaller exe. It is a Sage Live version , see this post on Sage Windows UG . It is an ISO that can be turned into an exe or burned to a live CD or manually tweaked into. See the help. Emil is also working on an even smaller Sage Lithe here
