Flash cards I used under Windows come up perfectly. Fonts are not very pretty since it seems to default to bitmapped fonts if the MS fonts are not found.
What does not
Program does not display characters properly and sometimes will crash if you select a font other than the bitmapped fonts. This includes both Linux and Microsoft fonts (I copied msmincho.ttc and msgothic.ttc from a WinXP installation). The bitmapped fonts inherently don't scale up in size well, so a fix is highly desired.
Tip: If you hose the program by selecting a bad font, you can "fix" it by deleting your jfc.cfg file.
One more complaint: many text strings within the program (menu items, parts of dialogs) are truncated. This was mostly an annoyance during my usage rather than a showstopper.
What was not tested
I didn't test any vocab flash cards; just kanji cards and "advanced" kanji cards. I'm pretty sure the vocab cards will work fine though.
I installed using the zip files. This avoids the need to use exe installers
