Pauker is a generic flashcard program written in Java. It uses an innovative combination of ultra-shortterm, shortterm and longterm memory. You can use it to learn all the things you never want to forget, like vocabularies, capitals, important dates,

Pauker is a nice program for flash card learning. However, the project seems to be fallen asleep. The last updates were released long ago, and at the moment there is hardly any support. I installed Pauker 4 days ago, but switched to Mnemosyne yesterday. When you compare these two programs you'll see that Mnemosyne has a lot more features. Although you need a little more effort to accustom to Mnemosyne, it is worth the trouble. (1) Especially for vocabulary learning with additional pronounciation and other remarks, Mnemosyne is much more convenient. (2) Although I haven't tried this yet, you can also add pictures - e.g. for learning maps and you can add sounds. (3) In Pauker you can't change the intervals after which you repeat the cards. But in Mnemosyne the intervals are calculated for each card seperately based on how well you know the card - so the repetition is much more efficient. (4) You can customize Mnemosyne with many available plugins. (5) The database of Card Sets you can download for Mnemosyne is bigger. (6) Mnemosyne is still developed further by an active community and you will get support quickly. (7) There are some helpful statistics where you can see your learning progress. I think both programs are very easy to use after some time. The features of Mnemosyne are way better than Pauker. The Design of Mnemosyne is a bit better. The support for Mnemosyne is way better. Resume: Although Pauker is good, Mnemosyne is still better. (As at July 2013)
Excellent program - very easy to use and to get amazing result
This was one of the earliest free spaced repetition programs out there, and introduced me (almost 10 years ago!) to this amazingly powerful method of efficiently and systematically pushing knowledge from short-term to long-term memory. It's been vastly eclipsed in features by programs like Anki and Mnemosyne, but it's still very usable and has a relatively tiny footprint compared to those programs. Put your deck files on the cloud (i.e. Dropbox) and you gain some of the remote synchronisation advantages of e.g. Anki.
Awesome tool. I recommend it to everyone.
Visual style great!!
