Hi Markus,

E.g. the much simpler setup: With the Qt online installer, you can setup 
Qt, the compiler and debugger in one go and start coding in Creator 

For MSVC, you have to install compiler, debugger and Qt separate, and 
there are lots of things that can go wrong.

We *do* have these support cases in the Qt Forum nearly everyday.

And while you are right, that MSVC is better compatible with most 
Windows libraries, MinGW e.g. provides pthreads and therefore makes 
porting easier.
