I got my access to the D-Wave developer portal beta yesterday—only to be thwarted by a lack of an OS X version of their python pack. Luckily, I have access to a Windows PC during the week, so it’s not a complete fail—but it would have been nice to devote some real time to quantum programming over the weekend. Unfortunately, for a more permanent solution I’ll either have to get a PC of my own, or taint my macbook pro with a bootcamp installation of windows.
There is a linux version as an .egg distribution, which could probably be bootstrapped to work under OS X through Fink, unfortunately it’s only compatible with Python 2.6, and Lion comes with Python 2.7.1. Not entirely a happy day.
I’ll post more when I get a chance to try out the D-Wave python pack.
