Yes, it is a fantastic general-purpose IDE. While it supports QMake (of 
course) and CMake projects "natively", you can also import any existing 
code. The "kits" (compiler, linker, debugger, etc) can be fully 
user-defined (they use the platform tools by default) as can the build 
process (so you can invoke MSBuild if you like, for example). The 
debugger UI is second only to VS's IMO, and works well with all of the 
debuggers I've used with it (gdb, lldb, the Visual Studio debugger). The 
IDE itself has all of the features of VAX that I wanted, without the 
cost, and its code indexing is excellent as well.
