anyone understands those qubits?

Seems little too hellish to me. But probably our grandparent would think same about normal bits.

i wonder how will "assembly" look there

This is a nice article for introduction. Also search for "shor's algorithm" for factorisation. This is interesting stuff and I read recently that there is research into a 4-qubit quantum computer, not very big it seems, but still a milestone that can only get better.

i've read about 12 or 13 qubit computers working...

So my prediction came true, the 4-bit got better Wink

Hey, if any of you live in the US (or can get books from the US), get a copy of Seth Lloyd's book "Programming the Universe". It's pretty interesting and covers this topic.

In brief, quantum computations are probabilistic.
it seems they are "different" computers done for different jobs (i.e cryptanalysis).. well, I'm not a guru in this area...
