    Again, filed under the "who really cares anymore?" category, but noted here for the sake of completeness...

    From D2.net, Blizz has released an OSX native installer for D2...

    The installer is here:http://www.blizzard.com/support/?id=adt0387p

    Damn. I want a starcraft installer. That's the reason it isn't on my mac since I hate classic.

    You'd think that now they have the D2 installer it'd be easy to make a starcraft installer since they both use the same underlying .mpq file format and hierachy system.

    You won't go into classic even for the length of time it would take to install Starcraft? You don't have to play it in classic, you know.

    But you're right, it should be easy to do the installer now. Perhaps they will do an installer for SC soon.

    I think I am going to switch to Classic on my iBook. I can't stand using OS X on a less-than-uber Mac... it's so slow.

    I don't have it installed. I'm not going to sit around for an hour installing and updating a piece of shit OS so I can install a game. Why don't I just play it on my pc?

    Okay, good point. As long as we agree that you would play it on OS X if you had the choice. ;)
