Hi Team Ada

I am about to dive into Lego Mindstorms worls, in order to stay one
step ahead of my kids ;-) well thats my excuse...

I was just reading in "The Unofficial Guide to Lego MINDSTORMS
Robots",  http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/lmstorms/

that there is an alternative to NQC (Not Quite C), namely legOS
allowing one to program the 'bots in C & C++. Hmmm...

Well have any of you dudes tried using Gnat Ada 95 ?

Now there could be a whole new Ada community in the making, all we
need is a Lego 'Bots Library of reusable Ada 95 components.

It seems Java is already angling on in..

Anyone tried this stuff with Ada 95 ??? I'd be interested to know as
you lot "over the pond" seem to be well schooled in this Lego stuff.
