The environment in which a developer works. This consists of all the development tools at his disposal. These tools can be grouped together into an integrated development environment.
The development environment can be visual (graphical) or textual or conceptual (command line tools). But, ordinarily the tools in the environment work well together.
There are good examples on Linux, Solaris, Windows, Macintosh, Unix, OS2 etc.
