    I've not been able to get a definitive answer, however it's not been officially rolled out yet. Apple is bad about allowing it's customers enough information for planning purposes. They simply don't care, despite the lip service they use in their sales & marketing drivel. Sadly they have a massive contingent of customers that will take anything that Apple dishes out without complaint. As a result Apple runs as a dictatorship. They've even got their customers programmed to believe Apple knows what's better for them than they do. Now that's one heck of an accomplishment on Apples part.

    I've been told apple do plan to allow SL to use cloud with the 10.6.9 update. This update is just for Icloud

    Contrary to what some other posters have stated, yes, it will, although not as thoroughly as Lion. Apple will also include iCloud some degree of support for the newer versions of Windows (Windows 7 and later for sure; perhaps also for Vista).

    Yes, you are correct.

    I just came across a report that said approx 20% of Mac users are on LION. Therefore a decision was made to include some iCloud functionality in the upcoming rev: 10.6.9.

    Has the 10.6.9 / iCloud rumor been confirmed anywhere? As far as I'm aware, that report originally came from a single developer screenshot referencing 10.6.9, but there hasn't been a single word from Apple or a beta release.

    Even after last week's keynote, Apple continues to only reference Lion when talking about iCloud support in OSX.

    It would be foolish for Apple to say... "Don't worry about upgrading to Lion. You don't need to buy it."

    Remember, this is the same company that said Lion would only be available via the App Store.

    That's true, but it would also be foolish for any of us to tell SL users that they'll be receiving iCloud support when we really don't know. Apple has demonstrated countless times that they're not afraid to leave "legacy" hardware / software in the dust.

    Why would it be "foolish" for me (or everyone else here for that matter) to imply that SL 10.6.9 will indeed accommodate iCloud? Will their macs explode if it doesn't? At the very worst they'll find they have to upgrade to Lion.

    I think it's "foolish" for those people clinging to SL (for good reason) not to wait and see:

    My comment wasn't a flame. This thread started with a really simple question and the answer is... no one outside of apple is sure.

    I didn't take it as such.

    But really... this whole forum is based on what Apple never tells us. :)

    Hoping Apple has news for SL users this week re: iCloud. A few of my friends have had problems when they updated to Lion (erased HD's, sluggish Adobe CS suites, etc.) and I'm still hesitant to install.
