Pretty much all the big finance companies in Wall Street (i.e. the

No need to play word games. I mean in C/C++ you need to use #ifdef
__WIN32__ (or whatever) if you want your program to be portable. That
is what I mean by portable code. In contrast, Java world doesn't only
consist of classes and .jar files. Many operations (especially low
level ones, or those that need speed) are implemented in JNI, which
renders Java still C/C++ dependant, hence not easily portable.
