Windows and I Cloud Apple Misinformation----

I Cloud and Windows --- you are screwed !
Thought my 'roll over' to I Cloud would be easy. Not ! I have a MobileMe/email account. Works fine. But, in June all of the accounts must convert to the Cloud. (I have PC/XP, IPad2,IPhone). You cannot use your Ipad nor Iphone for your mobile me / cloud conversion. You must have Vista and/or 7 on your PC. Then ,convert. So, I am screwed with my XP platform.
If you plan to get Windows 8, you are screwed-- not compatible(Apple tech info today). Tens of thousands of people will be very surprised in just a few weeks as they try to roll over to the Cloud. Some may feel fine,,,until, they buy Windows 8. Apple Customer Service told me, today, they are adding dozens of technicians to try and handle this wonderful apple (lower case 'a' on purpose) "sales" event ----obviously, they are trying to move a % of those affected their way. I believe there are millions still using XP,,,globally.
I am thinking of trying the 'work around' I found on the net. Does it work?? Don't know what to do longer term. Might dump apple (firm of 35K+ employees) in the future for more customer focused vendor.... ?? Don't know,,,,decision to be made this Summer (as we see Windows 8 coming).
Sorry for both alert and rant. Be careful out there.
