I'm currently located in China and taking the CS50 class. Most things work fine; however, the CS50 Appliance is FAR too large of a download for me to get in any reasonable amount of time here. Edge is telling me I'm looking at a 8 hour and 15 minute download. In the week 1 lecture continued, it was mentioned that the CS50 appliance is just Ubuntu Linux with gedit installed. My computer already has an Ubuntu 14.04 installation on a separate partition. Is there any particular reason why I couldn't just install gedit on Ubuntu and get things like the CS50 libraries separately? In just writing this post, the download time has actually gone UP to 8 and a half hours, so not having to download another OS to run in a virtual machine would be greatly appreciated.
