Welcome to the possible future home of OpenMX - the open source version of WinMX.

The domain www.openmx.org has already been purchased but nothing will be published there if the current owner of www.winmx.com renews his domain this october.

I have placed a backorder on www.winmx.com and hopefully I can prevent winmx.com from becoming a pay/scam site if the domain isn't renewed.

WinMX has not updated its program since version 3.31 was released in October 2002. If they abandon their program then maybe the OpenMX project will turn it into an open source program. The developer of WinMX is Kevin Hearn of Frontcode Technologies (http://www.frontcode.com/). I hope he makes it open source if he decides to abandon it. How would a developer go about getting the code from a program that is closed source in order to make it open source?

I am glad that the potential developer of OpenMX had the foresight to also put a backorder on winmx.com.

Here is the domain name registration information for openmx.org:
