I can't tell if "PC police" is a pun (with PC standing for both Political Correctness and Personal Computer), or just a coincidence. Because we all know that quantum computing is not in the personal computing market, and won't be for at least the next few years. I may be out of my depth but I'm pretty sure that a quantum processor doesn't even offer any benefit to an average joe, they're mostly useful for research and for breaching security - so they may never reach the mainstream personal computers.

I guess what I'm saying is, if that "PC police" bit was a pun, I don't appreciate it in the slightest.

I don't know about the pun, but it seems it's really hard to do satire now when reality is this weird:

I mean, not only are folks writing letters of complaint arguing that using the word (sorry, 'descriptor') "supremacy" is somehow irresponsible, but Nature sees fit to publish it...

which is why the PC Police won't tell you how inferior classicals are to the quantum super-computer.



Uhh... what an inferior article... PREJUDICE IMPLIED. The author evidently needs their head examined. I suppose, coming up to X-mas, we should not speak of ``nativity'' scenes, but rather ``origination''. Anyway, there are more apt words than advantage for the Saxonist.
