    I just recently switched to a PC at work :(. Is there any way to use iMessage on a PC?

    Nope, like many other Apple apps, this is only for OS X. I use both a Mac and a PC, and I'd love to see this come over to windows, but I'm under no illusion - it will never be there.

    Probably more chance of waking up on the moon tomorrow morning. Apple rarely share their services with competing platforms.

    No, it will never come to PC. It's part of apple's plan to get you to buy a Mac.

    Thanks, I thought the answer would be no, just wanted to make sure!

    I wish they would let us use if from iCloud.com

    So on any computer we can still use iMessage.

    I totally agree. Bringing iMessage to the web would be great, without them having to develop a Windows app.

    I'll just throw in that there's a jailbreak tweak (Remote Messages) that accesses your iPhone's Messages app via a PC or Mac web browser as long as they're on the same local network. You can do iMessage and SMS that way.
