Maybe my question maybe be off topic but some person told there is a risk that Apple might stop java virtual machine (i.e. Mountain Lion).
If this is true, do you know what stable open source language that can have long term existence and able to be run on Mac, PC and Linux ?
Right now, I'm open sourcing java GUI to interface with arduino boards (based on Atmel MCU family) so my application.jar once compiled can be directly run on any Mac, PC or Linux.
What would be another java *like* programming language providing such portability or multi-platform executabilty ?
Are we in situation where Apple does not want to sponsor anymore open source software in the near future ?

> Well, Java is not compiled into machine code, but instead into byte-code, that needs a virtual machine to run (to convert the byte code to actual machine code on the current platform at runtime). So, regardless of your development environment, the java virtual machine runtime is needed for the platform to be able to run programs written in java. This is the bigger issue, and the reason for this list.
