I had some work for FPGA on Windows, but now I want to change the platform to Linux. I am looking for some VHDL IDE instead of Xilinx?

There's a big difference between the IDE (development environment) and the simulator. The IDE might come without a built-in simulator, and the simulator might come without a GUI.

If you're looking for a simulator, here is a list of free VHDL simulators with download links. Most simulators work on Linux too.

Yes, it is useful.But I want a free simulator. –  Kesco May 9 '12 at 15:15
    
Altera ships a free (of charge) version of ModelSim. If you want free (as in beer), your basically stuck with GHDL. –  Philippe Aug 20 '12 at 12:40
