I hate it when people say this.

Keep in mind that iCloud is brand new and still in beta. Give it some time before you can rely on it 100%.
The problem with this response is that it doesn't directly address the issue. The issue is Apple sometimes produces garbage, and being the greatest tech company in the world, we expect it to have the best cloud service too, as well as the best Office Suite. Unfortunately, it doesn't because someone is sleeping behind the wheel. A multibillion dollar corporation that has the potential to completely dominate the market shouldn't release mediocre products. It has all the resources to produce the best, every time. iCloud doesn't even come close...

Am I seriously the only one who has had basically zero problems with either MobileMe (since 2009) and iCloud other than an authentication glitch for 24 hrs while my account transitioned to iCloud?

Is it because I'm in a time-zone about 12 hours different to the US (maybe it is load related)?

Compared to Google mail and services Icloud is very poor. It's as reliable as something I could run from home with a server over the modem

I have used iCloud exclusively since it first came out, and I am a heavy user and I have had no problems. The web client does suck, but I use the native apps and it works really well there.

No problem here. Exaggerate much?

Even Jobs admitted MobileMe was very poor. Sadly iCloud is only marginally better. If Apple doesn't do something about its poor performance in this arena, they're going to have some serious issues to deal with.
