in reply to Truly reusable software components

While it's by no means a universal VM, or even a VM, x86 32-bit architectures fulfill some of this, in the sense that it's commonly and widely used.

With a more general and uniform way of calling libraries written in other languages from any of the languages (see .NET) the virtual machine and the machine itself can be one and the same. Give every language a compiler for the native architecture (or an interpreter running natively on same) and it's your VM.

The "general and uniform way of calling libraries written in other languages" is the tricky part.
