I would never install any Apple software on a Windows machine. It may
work fine for Apple machines, but their Windows versions of software are
system HOGS (*especially* iTunes). Don't know about iCloud itself, but I
have no desire to find out.

Have to agree. I made the mistake of installing iTunes when I purchased
an iPod Touch several years back and ended up uninstalling it after
realizing that its bloat was not worth any purported benefits that it
was supposed to provide.

I later got fooled again when I purchased Adobe Premiere for Windows (an
Apple port) to do some home video editing. Not only was it a space hog
and resource hog, its UI was horrid, akin to console game
controller-based gameplay ports to Windows mouse-based gameplay. I
uninstalled it and used a less-expensive, less bloaty, more responsive
and more featured Windows video editing program.

I have to agree.  The PC version of iTunes is about the worst piece of
crap software I have ever seen.  Unfortunately, some of the features are
pretty much essential if you have an iPhone and want to make best use of

Yep, I couldn't find an iTunes replacement. Sure, there are third parties but they requires iTunes. :(
