Ummm ... I have doubts about that.

Suppose a Java port of Free Pascal is developed. Then Pascal will be
running on the Java VM. Now, if we apply your statement we can
conclude that there is no use for Pascal.

Maybe your statement would be more precise if it was:

'Software that runs in a VM, like Java or .NET are of inferior quality
when comparated to native software'
