Which Operating system and Qt development tools/libraries combination do you use for development?

I want a poll where people can vote. Unfortunately, I do not see a option to create a Poll. Hence this question.
I expect objective precise answers like below:
Kubuntu 14.04 + Official installer
Kubuntu 17.04 + repository
Manjaro 17.0.1 + repository
Win 7 + Official installer

Let mine be first:
Manjaro 17.0.1 + repository
What do you mean by "repository" and "official installer"?
Also, this forum does not currently support polls.

Hi @JKSH ,
By repository he probably means the Qt package that is shipped with his linux distribution.
ie. debian uses apt-get to install them. Those are likely to be of an older version compared to the ones when you use the online installer.
Edit : since Qt can be used cross platform, a poll doesn't seem to be a good way to get statistics. We all use different OS 'es.
online installer for :
Win 8.1, 10
Mac OS X El Capitan
Debian Jessie (for the time being)
By repositor he probably means the Qt package that is shipped with his linux distribution.
Makes sense :)
I'm mainly using Windows 10 + Official installer.
I'm also using, in a VM, Ubuntu 17.04 + Official installer. The distro-provided Qt packages tend to be a few versions behind.
Windows 10 / 7 + Official installer ( 7 is vm)
Linux Mint 18.1 + Official installer (vm)
kde neon + Official installer (vm)

Dev: Win7 + Qt 5.9 Official release (from installer) + MSVC2013
Debian buster (testing) with Qt built from git + the version from the repo (currently 5.7.1).
Creator as IDE.
g++ as a compiler.
I only test on Windows, but there I use the online installer to get what I need. Creator as IDE and mingw as compiler, I rarely compile with MSVC.
