Yes, but I did not write to ask for problem solution. 
You took me wrong completely.

I was talking about software quality and usability.
The barrier of installing QtCreator is very low - few mouse clicks and you're 
ready to run. And most things work out of the box without having to take a 
look at helpfiles or google for it. I very appreciate Q

The impact of no debugging output is so big, that I thought, there might be 
lots of people that tried QtCreator, that just removed it caused of that.
So I'd just wanted to give you some food for thought.
