You don't need an IDE to develop software, and I think it is wrong
for a project to impose an IDE onto developers since choice of IDE is
a matter of personal preference. I feel sick when a project's build
requirements starts with "First install Eclipse (you need version
2.3.431 from the latest SVN sources)" or similar.
If you want you can develop Qgis using Notepad.exe and compile from
the C: prompt. Or you might be able to use Eclipse. Personally, I edit
stuff in Emacs and build from the command line.
The Qt GUI designer, "designer", is used for making dialogs but that
doesn't extend to code.
