A set of independent qbits would have a mean lifetime that is the reciprocal of the sum of their FITs. In a quantum computer the qbits are NOT independent, they are entangled. I have yet to see any analysis of the mean lifetime of a set of entangled qbits, but I have a sneaking suspicion it is a lot less than a set of independent qbits. To decode 2048 bit RSA you need 2048 entangle qbits, plus coherency preserving hardware in order to manipulate them. If you think controlled fusion energy is hard ...Qbits are unstable, with a mean lifetime depending on the technology.
