I just used CMake for a different project and it appears it *doesn't* really generate Visual Studio projects. It generates a simple Visual Studio project that wraps a cmake invocation to do the actual building. (At least for Visual C++ 2010 and 2012)
This gets no-where-near the development experience we currently have with real Visual Studio projects. Many development features, including dependency checking and individual file rebuilds are disabled in this scenario.
It might still be easier than NMake which is currently used for some of our dependencies, but CMake is in its current state (tested 2.8.10) certainly not a replacement for real Visual Studio files.
