In a broader view, looks like Qt acquisition worked very well for both Qt, Nokia and the rest of us.
A look at Qt 4.6

- it's a bit on the slow side
- missing basic features such as insert/overwrite mode
- autocompletion of header files doesn't cope with relative paths
There are a lot more issues but to be fair these are annoyances rather than show-stoppers. I do like the fact that it behaves more or less the same on Linux and Windows.
All in all a good effort guys but don't stop yet.

Insert/overwrite mode is considered a gross misfeature by some. Like me. Very rarely useful, and it's not that hard to turn it on by accident.
QT Creator vs Emacs

Crashes? I've been using Qt Creator for about a year now, every day, on
three platforms, for projects between 40,000 and 1,000,000 lines of code,
and I've never had a crash since it came out of beta. Maybe it's because I
freshly compile Qt Creator every morning after doing a git pull... And
compared to, for instance, the speed with which Emacs fontifies some of
the bigger legacy classes in my projects, Qt Creator is extremely fast.
I've stopped using Emacs altogether for my C++ projects now, in fact.
And since nothing in Emacs can do the kind of smart code insight Qt
Creator offers (well, KDevelop is even better at that, but KDevelop is
still a beta), I've actually gained a lot in productivity.
So, if it's been some time since you last tried Qt Creator, like, since
the first beta, give it another try.

Anyway, it's still a matter of preferences. One should check out both, of course -- it's just that one would presume 'emacs' was tried (even at least once) by everybody here among LWN crowd already.

You don't get odd behaviours in indentation such as indenting Q_OBJECT correctly, and I've never quite gotten semantic/CEDET working right with Qt projects.
