I'm not sure if this should go here, so my apologies. The fact is that lately I have heard a lot about quantum computers and that they are not that far away. As it is a totally new technology, which changes from the ground, I'm wondering if the actual software could be reused. Could compilers be moved there? Could Linux be run? I'm guessing no, because of the architecture, but one never knows, as it is a relatively new technology.
It may seem a stupid question, but I'm not really informed about it, besides the small and short information released by the media and some scientifics.
It would be awesome if someone could clarify it for me.
