Windows XP users won’t have access to iCloud Apple's iCloud requires Windows XP or Windows 7
By  Clayton Vallabhan Published  June 13, 2011

Apple's iCloud will not support Windows XP, according to the company's latest press release. The Windows system requirements mentioned by Apple seem to have left out support for the 10-year old and still widely used operating system.

As per the official Apple Press release, 'Using iCloud with a PC requires Windows Vista or Windows 7; Outlook 2010 or 2007 is recommended for accessing contacts and calendars.'

MobileMe and iTunes 10.3 both support Windows XP SP2, however it seems that these two apps may be the last to support the older Windows operating system.

Without support for iCloud, Apple is leaving out a massive group of users who still use the older operating system. As a result Windows XP users will have to upgrade to Windows Vista or Windows 7 if they want to use Apple's latest service.

I think its ridiculous that you pay 700€ for an iphone, and then it cant even synchronize its calendar with your pc unless you spent some an additional 300€ on Office. even 5 year old cheap phones can do that. The only reason they do that is so you buy a mac. and it works. i know someone who first bought an iphone, and now he wants to buy a mac because he cant synchronize.....
