Try to think of the operating system as the IDE. At least with Unix and 
similar systems that is a really powerfull solution. It includes not only 
vim, bash and make, but also stuff like e.g. ctags, awk, sed, etc. Even 
python itsself is part of the system and can be used for special purpous 
utilities like e.g. code generators.

If you need User Interface Design, there are quite powerful stand alone 
tools, like e.g. the QtDesigner which can be used with that "OS IDE".
