We are aware of the fact that many people around the world would like to use SuperMemo but simply cannot afford the commercial version of the program.
It has always been our firm tradition to release older commercial versions as freeware. This policy not only makes SuperMemo available to anyone who has a regular access to a computer, but has also been certifiably responsible for the promotion of the trademark as well as the idea of spaced repetition. A proportion of registered users of SuperMemo (probably around 5-10%) have also started with a freeware version in the past.
You can also obtain the newest version of SuperMemo for Windows by contributing your own learning material to SuperMemo Library. For more information, write to us.
