    With the introduction of quantum computing, expect security nightmare. Most encryption schemes are going to become easily breakable.

      You guys do realize that quantum computers still implement ISA's right? Instead of deriving logic from binary gates, they derive logic from quantum gates. It's possible to develop an x86 ISA with quantum gates if they wanted to.

        It'd be interesting to see the implementation, since you can't really quantum-copy data. With the creation of copy, "original" is going to "auto-destruct" by itself AFAIK. It should throw pretty big wrench into 1:1 emulation..

          The answer is no. The architecture is entire foreign to what we are used to. Even if you could, would you want to? Quantum computers are more computers in the traditional sense.

          Linux and GNU run on what is better described as information systems, and occasionally do compute tasks(like super computers)

            It might be possible to make linux run in a quantum computer (like a VM), but not as a quantum computer, if you know what I mean.

            Quantum computers simply don't work the same way as binary computers, as such operating systems and software are not compatible from our well known turing machine based devices to quantum computers.

              Absolutely, if they don't now they will because THEY HAVE TO. Linux is solely used for physics and particle physics research in particular and all kinds of messed up topics dealing with QM, as a matter of fact the first quantum computers will be linux compatible.

              It would be completely stupid to let quantum computers run in windows and not on linux, the real people who take advantage of UNIX systems the most and therefore research around the world would be truncated.

                That's like asking an automobile manufacturer to construct a car that operates and behaves like a horse.

                  Logic is logic in the end. Whether the logic gate is quantum or binary, in the end it's logic.

                    The computer industry has not only managed to build programmable computing machines, they've also outdone themselves by doubling the capabilities every eighteen months or so. Despite these frenetic advances in computer technology, modern computers are still unable to make significant dents in hard problems.
