Why Sun Doesnt Need VMs

Why Sun Doesnt Need VMs:
"And the lesson for us is this: Its the APIs stupid. And our Java
APIs are not dependant on a VM. VM technology is still useful, even
advantageous to us today in a world of mixed platforms but its just a
technical solution to a particular problem-- portability. If the problem
goes away we can still be highly sucesssful if we have established
our APIs as the preferred way of programming the content."
