Just thought i'd point out, seeing that this thread already has nothing to do with FlashFXP that WinMX absolutely does NOT use the Gnutella network.

They used to use the Napster network and opennap servers, but ever since Napsters death and the conversion of the excellent MusicCity opennap network to Morpheus, WinMX is running their own p2p servers.

It appears to be a custom mixture taking some of the better points of both Napster & Gnutella. They support extended mp3 info and user to user messaging, and they have centralized servers (like Napster) yet still also make use of direct user connections (ala Gnutella).

It's an interesting mixture to say the least, but it is not the Gnutella network by any means.
