WinMX Then and Now
WinMX is 17 years old
How WinMX looked like and how it is now:
WinMX Windows Music Exchange is a freeware peer-to-peer file sharing program authored by Kevin Hearn and the team at Frontcode Technologies in 2000. According to one study, it was the number one source for online music in 2005 with an estimated 2.1 million users. Frontcode itself abandoned development of WinMX in September 2005, but developers brought the service back online within a few days by releasing patches. WinMX continues to be used by a community of enthusiasts.
