LEGO Mindstorms information

Software platforms

There are many software platforms (operating systems) for Lego Mindstorms. At least two seem to have nice structure and support; brickOS (formerly known as legOS) and LeJOS. Se also Lego Mindstorm with Linux Mini-HOWTO


  • BricxCC an integrated development environment for NQC, also support brickOS
  • brickRC a simple Gnome application to remotely control a LEGO Mindstorms RCX brick that runs brickOS

brickOS information

Note: brickOS was formerly known as legOS. Complaints from LEGO forced the name change.

LeJOS information

I do not have first hand experience of LeJOS. But homepages etc indicate that it is well worth looking into.

Other platforms

There are also several other programming languages/operating systems that can generate code for Lego Mindstorm. Here is a partial list.
