"WinMX" is short for "Windows Media Exchange"
Fopnu is multi-platform (not just windows) ... so far windows and linux but i have a funny feeling a mac version will be available in the future...
the best take ive heard on what 'Fopnu' comes from is "For old peer network users", however this was a humorous suggestion by a user that shall remain unnamed, not by the dev of Fopnu itself..
WinMX is also technically a network that was shut down by the legal system so using its name is most likely not a good idea... that winmx.com itself is allowed to operate as a redirect is honestly a bit of a surprise.. ...WinMX is also a name that was 'stolen' by many using modified limewire clients as a cash grab con job... its a bit of very ancient windows 95 era abandonware that is on life support via a patch... 'tis best to let the name 'WinMX' stay with the original software and move on with an entirely new name... ...and, personally, i think the name Fopnu is quite clever as it doesnt really have a meaning beyond what the users give it...
