    What is the purpose of iCloud then?

    It looks like iCloud is Far more worse then MobileMe itself.

    iCloud is designed for Apple Mac and IOS products. The web interface sucks!

    iCloud has a lot of features. Maybe not everything everyone wants. But you can find out easily.

    iCloud is confusing, at least in its present form and it's functionality leaves a lot to be desired. I think that Apple will get it right with the next incarnation (and merging) of OSX and iOS

    In the meantime, Dropbox does it right first time

    iCloud is an Apple-only service which currently supports iOS well and OS X incompletely. Windows... not at all, really.

    Dropbox is what I use. Free for 2GB, double space bonuses if you have a student email. For example, sign up at http://db.tt/Me4yRjt and I get a space bonus! :)

    It's a great service, and nicely cross-platform.

    Regarding file storage, I would look at Windows Live Mesh (Skydrive) from Microsoft. Very simple to use and it has a client for both Windows and the Mac. You create a folder that you want Synced. You can say you want the files only on the two computers (for large files) or on the computers and in the cloud (takes cloud space). And you get a lot of cloud storage for FREE. Works very well.
