Snippet:
Attention: the original Starcraft has been patched for the first time in over 8 years and is now FREE.

StarCraft and StarCraft: Brood War are now free. The links below will direct you to the correct battle.net installer for your system (if you’re on PC or MAC):

[PC] battle.net/download/getInstallerForGame?os=WIN&version=LIVE&gameProgram=STARCRAFT
[MAC] battle.net/download/getInstallerForGame?os=MAC&version=LIVE&gameProgram=STARCRAFT

Here is some juicy info:

They’ve gone ahead and added windowed fullscreen/windowed mode (Alt+Enter to switch between).
They’ve also added UTF-8 support.
Cursor clamping in-game while windowed; unclamped in menus.
Added Popular Maps to streamline finding games or game types.
Added options to display actions per minute.
Added Observer mode.
Added opponent information when joining a game lobby.
Added autosaving for replays.
Added an option to display the game timer.
Added UPnP support.
Updated to a new OpenGL backend.
Improved gameplay responsiveness during multiplayer by increasing turn rate to match LAN speeds over Battle.net.
Improved UI layout in Battle.net sections.
Improved behavior of available lobbies within the ‘Join Game’ section.
Improved compatibility with Windows 7, 8.1, and 10.
Improved anticheat capabilities.
Improved installation and patching performance.
Mac Beta support now available for 10.11 and up.
Along with a couple of bug fixes, pretty impressive of Blizzard! Enjoy.

I spent so many hours playing this game in the late 90s and early 2000s.
