I think there is a wildcard in trying to answer this question, because if
the recent announcement of the discovery of Majorana particles turns out to
be true then we could build a Topological Quantum Computer, it would work
as well as a regular Quantum Computer but would be far easier to make
because it's far less susceptible to decoherence. And those machines would
be so fundamentally different from anything built before I couldn't even
guess what the future of software engineering will be like.
