This could make for some good discussion, so I think I'll bring it up. Anyone know anything about quantum computing? I'm no physicist and in fact have not even entered High School, so I don't know entirely too much on the subject, but from this article, I gather that quantum computing is the way of the future. This time REALLY the way of the future, unlike the many crappy web services claiming to be.

Anyway, I think it is all quite interesting. From what little I can gather with my little prior knowledge, a Qubit (the quantum computing equivalent of a bit) can, like a bit, be either 1 or 0 (here is the awesome part) eight different times. And when you increase the number of Qubits, the number of data that can be help increases exponentially according to 2^L where L is the Qubits.

I'm not entirely sure of that second paragraph, but nevertheless, you should all read the aforementioned article. You should especially read that article if you are one of those people who is hopeful of a rumored GooOS or something like that.
