next tech arms race.
The first commercially available quantum computers will be astronomically expensive. Because of their power, it is also likely governments will step in and limit their sale in the hopes of keeping them out of the hands of rogue governments and criminals. The starting price plus the export restrictions will likely keep the cost of quantum computers artificially high.
But there is a simple solution.
Since most businesses won't really need (or afford!) an in-house quantum computer, we will fall back on a proven business model -- time sharing. In the near future, businesses will be able to rent time and capacity on quantum computers via the Cloud. Suddenly you won't need a quantum computer in order to get the benefits.
