comment What is the Mindstorms NXT Education kit?
The software is only slightly different? I'm surprised, since back in the RIS days the educational software was totally different, and in fact, many schools dumped it in favor of alternate langauges like NQC.

comment What is the difference between the NXT and the RCX?
No, I'm pretty sure the "forgotten" language I am refering to is "MindScript", part of the retired Mindstorms SDK (back in the RCX only days). If I recall correctly, it was more capable than RCX Code, but less capable than NQC, so NQC quickly supplanted it. But it has most (all?) of a decade since I last did much with my RCX's so my memmory is a bit fuzzy on those details.

@HaydenStudios: Are you mad? The standard RCX firmware (the one loaded by the provided Lego-branded software, as opposed to the preloaded stub) was used with RCX code, NQC, and one other textual Lego-provided language that has been almost completely forgotten.
