 How Good Are Programs Written in Interpreted Code

"This continues with the above subject about Standardization of Available Methods, but goes a step farther. As a rule, when you write a program in an interpreted language on one OS (say OS X), at most, you will have to run the source through the VM on another OS (say Linux) to get it to run on that system. Whereas, with a compiled language, you will have to recompile it on any other OS you want to run it on, at the least. Quite often you would also have to recode a significant portion of the program to enable it to run on the other operating system. "
