No, you could also use VC++ that's integreated in the VS IDE
[assuming you have a commercial licence]

Plain Win32 project would do just fine. There is a Qt/VS
integration package that works more or less ok. You do not
need to use that, but then have to add moc steps etc manually
(or by script) to newly added files in the project.

There is 'AnkhSVN' which tightly integrates with VS and is
cute for smallish projects [but does not scale up very well].
Svn commandline is usable from cmd.exe or e.g. a cygwin bash.
No need to use an intermediate Linux computer.
