Gareth McCaughan’s summary of what we know about D-wave’s quantum computer

D-Wave is making waves (I know, I know) with its quantum computer. Scott Aaronson’s post about the latest on the D-wave saga was linked on Hacker News. Gareth McCaughan has given a very nice layperson summary of this post which is actually a very nice standalone read on D-wave and the essence of quantum computing. This amazing comment (which encapsulates all that is great about HN) is linked here in the hope that it will not disappear so soon. Gareth, do make this a blog post for us laypeople, if you have time. Thanks again.
