Free Game Recommendation: C&C

Need a game to play during the free days? Apart from the already mentioned World of Goo, what about the real time strategy game Command & Conquer? Not the new sucked-out one with colorful 3d graphics but the old, original Command & Conquer 1? It's available for free now, just download it from EA. Even works on Vista.
I had a lot of fun playing the missions again which I did last time in 1995. Still a great game.

seven comments, already:

downloading quite huge, it is.

Not just huge, but also very slow. Could someone who already has it post a MD5SUM of Then I could try an “alternate download source” without the risk of stumbling upon a virus-laden warez version of the game.
