Nonsense.  Java runs on one platform: the JVM.  C++, on the other
hand, runs on virtually every platform in use.  Writing portable
code takes discipline, no doubt; but it's done every day by
thousands of developers everywhere.  While the JVM itself has been
ported to quite a few platforms, many other languages are only well
supported on a few popular platforms or niche platforms.
