WinMX - Big in Japan and getting bigger

Postby Fuurin Kazan » Wed Dec 19, 2007 1:54 pm

Of course this is probably old news to some, but WinMX continues to be one of the most popular file-sharing clients in that land of high tech marvels, Japan. Even better, the number of users seems to be growing by leaps and bounds. The Record Industry Association of Japan estimates that around 2.5 million Japanese had used WinMX by 2005, swinging up to over 3 million by 2006. The 2007 reports hasn't been released yet, but I would bet the numbers will be even higher still.

I'm glad that Slyck's has decided to update their WinMX page, and look forward to seeing the results.

Winny is up top with 27%
WinMX at 15% of all p2p users, BitTorrent quite a way back at 7.4%

I loved using WinMX because of the discretionary uploads feature, and the chat rooms. I met a lot of online friends by trading files. I didn't realize it was still around. When it first resurfaced, I kept getting virus alerts related to the ole patch file, and I couldn't get any results in search. I gave up on it, and switched to eMule and torrents exclusively. The 650+ video files I've made were never very popular on MX, but the eMule crowd likes many of them.

If somebody has instructions on how to reinstall MX, please let me know. I think I have several versions of the setup.exe saved in my downloads.

Thanks,

ant.

Damn their behind the times still using winmx over BT. Winny is huge over their though, 27% of all users is much better than what limewire does in the US from recent surveys of internet users.

I wish everyone in the U.S. could be so far behind too. Winmx isnt just files, its a way to have fun, meet friends and get files. I find BT simply boring and the community very shallow.
