I think you're very confused. IDE, in this context, means Integrated 
Development Environment. Conceptually, it's independent of any particular 
language, framework and graphical toolkit - though many proprietary IDEs 
are tied to a particular language/framework/toolkit. An IDE typically 
comprises an editor, a code browser, a project organiser, a gui/form 
designer and a debugger.

If you're interested in a fancy cross platform IDE, then Eclipse comes to 
mind. It's Java based with plugins for lots of different languages.

I think you need to do more research on what you want to achieve before 
exploring your options...
