Amusing remark! :-) That may be an accurate observation, but I think  
the remark tells more about different ambitions among users than  
general differences between hardware vs software based instruments.  
The traditional way to go for anyone who wants to improve as a  
musician/composer is to get the best tools available and stick with  
them to progress. If the choice goes to software this user may be  
tempted to "upgrade" or "try more plug-ins" or whatever possibilities  
there are to distract him. But this type of user will probably stick  
to the original rig set-up that he considers "his instrument", just  
because that's the only attitude that leads to the progress he has  
envisioned. On the other hand, some musicians may find a much more  
rewarding feeling in simply trying out a lot of gear, without  
necessarily learning much in terms of musicianship or composing from  
the process.
