Coming from the Windows world one thing I do miss is an IDE.
Eclipse does look interesting. A quick google came up with this plugin:


which looks like it can handle .pro files.

Qt/QMake Support: 
    Qt3 application wizard
    Qt4 application wizard 
    Allows to build QMake applications 
    Creates run/debug configurations for QMake projects 

I'd also be interested to hear from any who uses the Eclipse IDE
with myth code.
