I recently downloaded an application called Pauker. It's a flashcards program for students.
It's written in Java and is packaged as a .jar executable (jar = java archive for those who don't know)
I ran it in Windows XP initially. It loads in about 7 seconds.
Then, I ran the same program in Fedora using
java -jar pauker.jar
It loads in about 2 minutes... even the second and third times I've ran it. (DOes Linux have a concept of cache?)
This makes no sense... am I missing something? Anyone else experience this?
Someone can test it themselves if they'd like... the download link is here.
