there is another very simple problem with languages like C# or Java.

In the case of C, it is the developers machine which has to have the 
proper software installed to compile it.

Java need the proper run-time and so the byte compiler installed on 
every client machine. If you run into a very specific problem with the 
byte-compiler, you have to have a specific version installed on all clients.

In case of C, you can do a static link to minimise this impact.
