    XCode is the development IDE for OS X that's available for free..

    What language were you going to program in? If you want cross platform, then you have to first find a cross-platform framework that will allow you to deploy across those 3 OS'.

    Qt is one such C++ framework that's used by many people successfully..

    The answer to this question depends on what language you want to code in given that a good portion of them are cross-platform.

    As Raz0rEdge noted, QT is a good bet especially since there are bindings available for a whole host of languages.

    If you're doing web development, cross platform issues are not a concern.

    You can write PHP code in any editor. As far as I know, there are no IDEs like VS for PHP (please correct me someone more knowledgable if I'm wrong).

    PHP is primarily for web applications. You'd be better off using a language geared towards desktop development.

    What languages are you familiar with?

    and a few details alse ( all these actions done from the program i designed from it) , so i think a program such as VS will do what i want , right ?

    Any of those languages will accomplish what you want except for Objective-C (which will do that but will be less cross-platform friendly). Python is nice as would C++ with QT bindings and a SQLite database.

    I agree with vansmith that Python or C++ would be a good cross platform choice, and to avoid Objective-C as it is OSX and iOS only.

    But I would echo cradom's advice about using Xojo for simple cross platform development from a single and user friendly IDE, and it also can be used for Web Application development from the same IDE.

    Although I'm an Objective-C and ApplescriptObjC developer at heart, Xojo would be my 1st choice for your cross platform project.

    Xojo
