You've obviously never tried to get it to run on a platform. Porting Java is like performing anesthesialess appendectomies, not only is it deeply painful, the good for nothing patient fights you every inch of the way.

Just because random people got suckered into using a non-portable, "portable," language does not mean the language is suddenly any good.

If Java were really portable, it wouldn't be so bad, but even between Java on different platforms not all software functions properly.
