Oh, I believe it.
The Gods were smiling on me last week when I updated mine - but even as I was updating I knew if something went horribly wrong I wouldn't be that upset.
The Gypsy is a wonderful little device, but not worth the aggrevation and anxiety of updating. Just one more thing to stress out about.
So basically I'd be happy with just using my cartridges - and now - hooking up to Cricut Craft Room.
A good dog, a sewing machine, and an old guitar......
