MS/Windows provides many good environments for the development
of software. However, GNU/Linux, and Unix before it, has a long
tradition of providing powerful environments for software development.
Sophisticated graphical interactive development environments (IDEs)
were developed on Unix but took of on the Apple Macintosh and
particularly on MS/Windows. However, the focus is beginning to
again turn to GNU/Linux as the most flexible open source, free
software, and commercial development environment.
