This question is from a lay person. LoL(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Quantum computing and it's associated research seems to be based on quantum superposition etc. 1 & 0

Why has the old 1 & 0 method of computation been carried over to and by Quantum researchers . It would seem that if you want faster and faster computers, one would abandon 1 & 0 and come up with pure form of Quantum computation and data storage/transfer that does not rely on the old standard.

I apologize if I have offended someone by posting this question in this particular forum.
