Yes. Although there are commercial IDEs and compilers for some languages, most of them have free alternatives. For example, MS Visual C++ is a commercial IDE for C++. gcc is a free compiler that can do C++ (amoung other things), and Dev-C++ is a free IDE for that language. Sun distributes their java J2SE SDK for free. Many other languages also have free compilers. If you tell us a particular language you are interested in, we can suggest one. Also, you might find google to be useful.

PHP 5 is a pretty easy language to pick up and now has a stand alone compiler. Check that out - php.net

The Assembly language has a lot of free IDEs and compilers.
Again, searching in google might be a good idea.

Python,Java,C,C++ all has free IDEs/Compilers as well.
