This may have been the case 15 years ago, but I don't think this is the
case any longer. Look at the program for recent ICMCs, for example, and
you'll find a younger generation of "composers" who simply use the
computer as their medium. Gone are the days of the demonstration pieces
for a given software/hardware, written by the person who created it in
an often heavy-handed way.

You might even say that some "great" pieces have been created, but
that's another thread.
