Python & LEGO Mindstorm control...

Hi all,

I have a question re the use of Python to control a robot built with the
LEGO Mindstorm system.
This is to help my 11yr old with his increased interest in 'programming' and
'robotics'... If not feasible, he wants to use the graphical-tool that comes
with it...

Would you suggest:
1. Using LegOS (http://legos.sourceforge.net/) and writing/using py
extensions from a Linux-box, OR
2. Using LeJOS (http://lejos.sourceforge.net/) and writing Jython utils.

Wanted to incorporate Python somehow, as it may be quite appropriate for his
age. Will have to help quite a bit in either case, tho... but was wondering
which is a more treaded path...

TIA,
/venkat
