Nowadays, anyone with a reasonably new personal computer has enough
computer power to do "real computer music", and there are good free
applications in all categories of music production.

This is a completely new situation in the arts, because (a) professional
means of artistic production did not used to be available to the general
public (except writers, actors, and some instrumentalists), and (b) this
particular means of production offers a great deal more power to those who
can program.
