Quantum computers have been around for some time now. Has the underlying technology / hardware changed much since the first iterations or is the ‘quantum’ in the title more of a grading of the use case for such machines? Disclaimer: I know little to nothing about these things only that they’re on the bleeding edge of tech.

Are hackers susceptible to other hacker group attacks? I know nothing of the culture, but I imagine it to be some kind of online gang turf war. Or is it more a case of hacker groups testing themselves against each other to strengthen their skills?

Thank you for the detailed answer. When you say ‘try things with them’, what are the most likely use-cases? Obviously that’s a broad question, but what question do quantum computers answer regular computers can’t cope with?

Ah I think I used a quantum computer once. Back when I had a 56k modem, I was downloading a file and the remaining time was 938 years. Suddenly, I assume the quantum qubits kicked in, it was only 13 days and I got my copy of Curse of Monkey Island in two weeks!
