VS should be capable of running any command via SSH.

I guess the add-in will be just as helpful for Linux as it is for Win32. It is certainly not essential -- setting up the MSVC project manually is always possible (though a little trickier in the case of a Linux build). The add-in simplifies much of that setup work, and also provides a close integration of Qt tools with MSBuild through the use of Qt-specific targets. This will also be the case when compiling on Linux.

You're probably the first person ever to try this.
Qt compiles on both Linux and Windows. If Visual Studio is capable of running qmake remotely when compiling on Linux for Linux, it should work. The VS Addin will not help you with that.
