I just talked with an Apple Care rep and I was told that I can update my MM account to iCloud and my calendars and email (@mac and @me) will still sync with my Mac running Snow Leopard. I only asked about those 2 specific things, because that is all I care about. You will have to do the migration to iCloud through your browser

Just out of curiosity, How did you migrate Mail to iCloud in Snow Leopard?
try this settings ( for outlook 2011 these work ) :
Username: your @me.com address username (email address without the @me.com on the end)
Password: Apple ID Password
Incoming server: imap.mail.me.com
NOT checked: Override default port
CHECK: Use SSL to connect
NOT checked: Always use secure password
Outcoing server: smtp.mail.me.com : 587
CHECK: Overide Default Port (will allow you to change to 587 above)
CHECK: Use SSL to connect

Just to be clear. The current answer is NO, iCloud will not work with Snow Leopard.
I am not happy with this answer, but that is what it is. I think I am going back to iOS4 if I can.

I have a perfectly good imac with a 1.83 Ghz Intel Core Duo that I can't put Lion on. Now my macbook and iphone are connected but the desktop that the family shares is useless.
Does anyone know a way around this?

Why go back? You don't have to use iCloud, or you can use both MM and iCloud for different things. We have a familr shared MM account and each of us have our individual appleID iCloud.
Regardless MM ends service next year.

icloud for snow leopard does work if you do the following:
Go to iCal preferences.
Set up new account.
Account Type: CalDAV
User Name: Your MobileMe / iCloud email address
Password: Your password for above
Server Address: p06-caldav.icloud.com

It is really amusing to have these people here saying how "good" "working" "reliable" etc.. their machines are.
In former versions of OSX this was all no matter. OSX evolved over time slowly. But these days with Lion it makes full use of CPU and GPU technologies, paired with far more advanced security and network standards.
They simple do not want to understand this :
Wanting the latest and greatest OS and Apps goes no longer together with owning old hardware. And Hardware is old the minute you unbox it at home. Might be tragic but that's how it is. Windows Users know this already, especially the "gamers" that are in a constant Hardware-Upgrademania only to run the newest games on PCs.

There are no "galleries" in the iCloud. iCloud is a "push" service to other supported devices and computers.
MobileMe Gallery pages will be discontinued July, 2012 with the end of its services (iDisk, Web pages, etc).

Silverbullettall - Your ical fix worked beautifully - thank you so much!!
QuickTimeKirk - So glad that you are "amused" that people can't throw down money every year for a new apple product to go with the products already purchased from Apple. Three iphones, a macbook and imac in the last 4 years is a pretty significant investment.
I understand completely that my hardware is out of date the minute it is "out of the box" ... interesting fact though, went back to an old windows pc running Vista to copy a VHS tape onto a DVD, done in 1 hour. Not a gamer - just trying to keep all of my machines in sync, which was working great until the upgrade of icloud.
