Out of all warez (aka softwarez and programz) sites on the Internet, F.O.S.I. homepage is definitely one of the oldest. Started in 1997, FOSI continues to offer direct download links to full version software even today in 2009. The downloads are virus free, reliable and fast. I’ve been using this site since the early 2000s and I’ve got to say that it hasn't let me down even once.


If you’ve been a frequent visitor to FILEnetworks Blog, you should be no stranger to private and public torrent trackers from which you can download almost any software for free. As opposed to private trackers, FOSI offers direct HTTP download links to software hosted on his site - these can be downloaded without the need for registration or any special software. The best thing about F.O.S.I. releases is that they do not contains cracks, key generators, trials, patches or anything else the user has to apply manually. Just install and you will have access to the full, unlimited retail version of the software.

Note that due to the limited bandwidth, only 36 software are available for download on any given moment. Most popular F.O.S.I releases include Jetaudio Plus VX, Tweaknow Powerpack, VirtualDJ Pro, Easy CD/DVD Recorder and many more. The page is frequently updated when a newer version of the software is available. During my several years experience with this site, I’ve never run across a virus or spyware infected download or found any adware, spyware or popups. There are however lots of on site advertisements which contain pornographic images.

F.O.S.I. page has several URLs through which you can access it. The site is known to change URLs from time to time perhaps due to security reasons. As of this moment you can access it using any of the following links:

    Hei dude I really appreciate you what you are doing but I can't find any signup url for this site. Please tell me about it!
    Regards Chiransj

  2. Crimson Demon // 1/11/2009 02:31:00 PM  

    lol, there isn't any sign up account. It just a simple site wer u have direct download links, just scroll down the page.

    Although there is a part it says to sign up, it actually means to sign up under his 'sponsor' if you want to support the site.

  3. TEAM FILEnetworks // 1/11/2009 05:07:00 PM  

    Yes Crimson Demon is correct there is no need to signup. All applications can be downloaded directly from the homepage itself.

    The old era ends. A new era begins.
    PROGRAMZ 14 dec 1997 - 14 may 2013

  7. Billy Warren // 10/31/2013 12:41:00 AM  

    As Dan Luo said. Nothing but

    The old era ends. A new era begins.
    PROGRAMZ 14 dec 1997 - 14 may 2013

    comes up for a few months now, nothing else, no matter what address/link used to get to the fosi site. Has fosi been down or what?

  8. Billy Warren // 11/11/2013 03:29:00 AM  

    Hmmmm, looks like F.O.S.I. is dead and this blog is dead as well, oh well.

    Give props where it is due. F.O.S.I. was the most reliable source of some of the best software for as long as I can remember. It looks like he retired and has started his next journey. All I can say is thanks and I hope your having the time of your life.

    I wish him the best.
    He was no nonsense, the real deal.
    Had a low tolerance for stupid and rude people. He was always straight with you. In todays society, you have to appreciate that. He will be missed.
    Signed, surprised you are gone:(

    Does anyone know of any other sites
    like FOSI- were the progs were clean.

    I'm trying to collect as much as possible of his old work and put it online in original spirit.


    If I have some spare time left after collecting his old work, I'll maybe go on on his old style but under the name FoLe. But for now this are future ideas.

    Whoever F.O.S.I was, his site was just the best for a hell of a lot of programs. There was never anything that was suspect or infected with virus or unwanted programs. Just trouble free apps. Oh how I wish there were more people like him in the warez download arena. He was an absolute legend.. I downloaded every program that he ever put up on his site. Never ever one that didn't install or without a serial that worked every time. Jees I miss his site. The funny thing is, once I was able to test a program thoroughly to make sure it worked I often bought the retail versions, but it was always good to try out the many different programs that he made available.

    Fosi was murdered by the FBI

  27. mekashonda // 9/26/2015 02:41:00 AM  

    FOSI was without a doubt the most reliable warez source.

    His site was very simple and it had direct links to very good programs with their serial number or key generators.

    No ads, no redirects, no signups, no spyware, no BS. The goodies as you would expect from retail releases. These days, if you want to get good stuff, you have to use triple condoms just to visit a warez site.

    Big kudos for all the Photoshop plugins he once hosted.

    FOSI was a legend.

    FOZI was the original and first web published black hat from the old school. It was super nice to see some of the cached pages revived for nostalgia. FOZI deserves her own wikipedia and IMDB entries to go along with some of the video Pirate legends like aXXo.

    Great post for us old school lurkers..


  31. John Hatfield // 3/29/2016 06:13:00 AM  

    I remember Phrozenn Crew's tHATdUDE, and Nitallica's SATUF pages and a few more like UCF, ebola,F.O.S.I. and especially Fravia. They were from the Platinum days of "Cracking" w/ Softice. early to middle\late 90's. They will never be forgot. Like "olden days" and anti heroes like Guy Fawkes.
    Remember remember the 5th of November,
    of gunpowder, treason and plot,
    I see no reason why gunpowder and treason,
    should ever be forgot.

    Phrozenn-4-Life is an expression i use frequently even to this day.
