It's a great conceptual introduction to the topic, one of the best, even for new people. I liked how many examples and applications were exposed. The interviews were perfect. I would like to know more about the math involved, but I understand that this is a conceptual and easy-to-follow course. Not bad!

Excellent initiative by the Linux Foundation team. I have personally been following quantum technology for the last 4-5 years, collecting information, atttending webinars, sessions, etc. That helped me understand quantum, but this course can give a ten thousand feet view of quantum technology, with excellent information to start the quantum journey. Really appreciate it, well done! Hoping to get more detailed or advanced quantum courses in the near future.

Contrary to most of the courses that I see online about Quantum Computing, the Linux course was different. I am a graduate student in physics, and have taken a couple of courses on QC. However, the actual working of qubits was not really clear to me. I couldn't figure out exactly how the qubits had advantage over classical bits. This course's section about the basics of quantum computing helped clear things up quite a bit. There is still a lot to learn of course, but the course was tremendously helpful in that regard. So kudos for that!
