    All you need is iTunes 10.5. iCloud and WiFi sync will work with Windows too. Well it works for me on Windows. :p

    Isn't Lion required for Photo Stream in iPhoto or for iCloud support for keeping Bookmarks, Contacts and Calendar synced with your iDevice and your Mac?

    Two different questions there

    To sync iCloud between your mac and iPhone or two macs (bookmarks, contacts, photoStream, docs), your macs would currently need OSX 10.7.2 update. there's no word on an iCloud patch for OSX 10.6

    For iTunes wifi sync you just need iTunes 10.5 and iOS5 on your iDevice, since that is not a part of iCloud.
    For iCloud sync between iDevices, or for iCloud backup of the iDevice, they all just need iOS5

    I think you do need lion. Why not? Lion is awesome anyways.

    I guess, but in general, 99% of the features do not require a Mac.

    Snow Leopard 10.6.9 should be out as well for those that do not want Lion.

    As a MobilMe subscriber bookmark, address book & calendar syncing IS 99% of the features that I need from iCloud and no I don't want/can't run Lion.

    That's what iCloud is for.
