It's my impression that physicists think that practical fusion is inevitable, though possible far off. I haven't seen that same confidence from physicists regarding quantum computing hardware, and in fact I've seen extreme skepticism.

The optimists regarding quantum computing are computer scientists. The pessimists are physicists. I figure the physicists know what they're talking about and the computer scientists are being wishful.
