    But do we sell systems? Or do we offer quantum-as-a-service in the cloud? I think that's too early to tell. Let's get the quantum system first." .... Intel's director of Quantum Hardware, James Clarke

    Quantum-as-a-service in the cloud allows ...

    a) Developed quantum system hardware and dedicated driver software to remain an extremely rewarding top secret unknown to copycatting pirates/phishing counterfeiters/foreign industrial saboteurs and competing quantum systems builders alike.

    b) Intel Quantum Hardware to Supply, Rule and Reign Supreme in LOVE with CHAOS for Novel Noble Nobel Prized Spaces and Really Practical Augmented Virtually Realised Places ..... for New More Orderly Earthly World Order According to the Plans and Wishes of its Supreme Ruling Orders.

    c) Live Operational Virtual Environments with Cloud Hosting Advanced Operating Systems for Pragmatic Alien Engagement and Spooky Quantum Entanglement.

    ..... which be only three advantages in a vast see of opportunities and possibilities available from Quantum Servicing Clouds.
