I did the same thing a couple of times when working with a team that
claimed to be very proficient with VS, but when finally faced the
release procedure, we all fought with VS for a week before switching
to mingw.

for my personal work, it's all done in Linux, and if it has to be
deployed on windows, i just use mingw.  If it's GUI work, i use
QtCreator on both platforms (compiled with mingw for windows)
