I'm familiar with NXT 1.0 and 2.0 but I've also seen reference (program samples, etc.) to NXT G. What's the difference?

NXT-G is the graphical programming software that comes with NXT 1.0 (8527) and 2.0 (8547).

enter image description here

The NXT-G software has been improved for the second version of the set which also comes with a few different bricks (including different tyres) and a different box design.


I seems like NXT-G is version 1.0. According to the Wikipedia article on the Lego Mindstorms NXT:

NXT-G v1.0 is a graphical programming environment that comes bundled with the NXT.
