Supposedly they've merged... although I do find from time-to-time, that sometimes you need to enter just <userid>, and other times <firstname.lastname@example.org> to login to a particular service.
Here's two tech articles from Apple explaining the merge:
Ok... these articles seem to assume that you have set up a .mac account first, then the apple id uses the same user name and password. I am going about this the other way round as I have an apple id already but not .mac so does this mean that I have to use my existing apple id name and password to set up .mac. I would have prefered a more anonymous .mac user name.
