Having a VM also adds a whole lot of security concerns and in case of jvm - dependency on sun/oracle. VMs are not the only way to kickstart language generation, there are other options, such as llvm (yeah, that name is confusing in this context).

There are other many other JVM available, even not certified ones, and you can also use compilers to native code if you wish to do so.

Wouldn't a vm help with security?
