Re: Goddammit El Reg
The fact is, every time I ask someone to explain this "quantum" thing to me, I get the same kind of answers ("you're just too thick" or "something about cats").
Seriously, what exactly about vector addition don't you understand??
Okay, Okay. Here are some links:
Scott Aaronson explains best, for civilians
Quantum Theory from 5 reasonable axioms this needs some time and contemplation
Quantum Algorithms via Linear Algebra: A Primer or grab this book
If you are feeling chipper, you may want to check this about a pictorial approach using linear logic. I don't understand it. One day, maybe.

Ni**erDude, if it were bullshit none of the computing and electronic "entertainment" devices would work. Ditto for lasers, the sun and generally everything (i.e. matter would collapse in about a picosecond)
