GeneralWill IT become successful and utterly fail at the same time? PinprofessionalSander Rossel23-May-14 11:31 
This morning in The Insider was an article about a Google Quantum Computer project[^]. I've seen articles and blogs about them quite a lot recently.
I am both very curious and very afraid for these computers...
I'm not very good at math and I pretty much hate it to a point where I cannot function properly when math is involved.
But I understand 0's and 1's (mostly, anyway), so I got that going for me, which is nice.
 
What I do not understand are superpositions and complex numbers. And since counting to 1 is probably the most I'll ever achieve in terms of math I was wondering how fast these quantum computers will conquer the world.
Should I find a new job? Or could I support legacy systems using 0's and 1's until I'm at my retirement age (still about 41 years to go)? Or do you think quantum computers will rule the world, but the math behind it will be mostly abstracted away for application developing programmers?
 
At least I'll know what to tell my customers[^] Smile | :)
It's an OO world.
