-1 IMHO too

Instead, please consider switching to MSYS2 for Qt6. It's much more structured than *bare* MinGW and it offers an increasing number of libraries out of the box.

I believe many developers would appreciate it, and I suspect it would help the Qt company too when packaging non-VS-Qt for Windows.

Also, MSYS2 is used by AppVeyor as CI system. I use it for my project. It's fantastic.

Please, I don't want to use Micro$oft stuff.
