Of course, its always evolution. Consider early demos on Amiga back in 1987 and 1988, and then compare them to demos in 1993 and 1994.

The machine didn't change, but the likes of Phenomenas Enigma and Sanitys Elysium couldn't come about in 1987 because there had to be an evolution of skills, a general progression as each coder and musician and graphics artist tried to outdo someone else in another group.

As someone put it, the demo scene is pretty much the biggest game of one upmanship there was.
