How much do you know about quantum computing

It's fake news, a lie or a conspiracy
0 (0%)
It won't play Crysis
7 (18.4%)
I read once about it and doesn't make any sense
4 (10.5%)
Looked it up a little, to the point of qubits and quantum gates
12 (31.6%)
Know/studied at least one quantum algorithm
0 (0%)
I run at least one quantum program (either simulated or on a quantum computer)
1 (2.6%)
I am a researcher/developer/teacher/student in quantum computing or quantum computers
2 (5.3%)
For a few specific tasks, quantum computers are far superior to classic computers
7 (18.4%)
Quantum computers are not superior at all, quite contrary, they come with extra technological difficulties

Side thought, but trying so hard to design systems that can crack robust encryption in a reasonable time is as interesting as it's psychopathic, which incidentally can also be said about quantum physics in general. ;D

Why all this excitement about quantum computers ? First because they are in principle able to crack RSA (Shor's algorithm) which is the most widely used encryption.  But RSA will be replaced by...  quantum key distribution ! Unbreakable by quantum computers.  And quantum key distribution seems now much closer to reality than quantum computers.

QKD already exists and commercial installations exist.
