Honestly, I've only played with the "homepage" feature and while
it's nice for integration with iPhoto and uploading albums, I've not
played with the advanced features that let me edit html or upload my
own html content.
The "jury" is still out on it for me. The cost is $99.95 for a
year, which is not bad for hosting and the other features.
I have a Mac (OSX), WinXP, and Linux based computers at home, all of
which I use in various forms and manners. I can connect to my .mac
account from my WinXP and Linux computers via browser and can
connect to my iDisk data from both as mapped drives as well.
The trial is 60 days for free, minus some features, so give it a
shot. I didn't think it required a mac OSX to get an account, only
to integrate the iLife tools (iPhoto, iDisk, etc...)
