Entanglement is a critical resource for a useful quantum computer. There is a not a consensus on whether large-scale entanglement is physically possible, and entanglement on mixed states at non-zero temperature is poorly understood.  We discuss theoretical and computable bounds on how much entropy a quantum system can tolerate and still be useful for computation, and some directions for further exploration.  This is not a research talk, but rather a review of interesting results.
