I'm using Skydrive (20GB plan) and really like it. I also use iCloud for contacts and photostream. Skydrive is the primary one for storing files though. I also think the apps they have for the Mac and iOS are excellent.

Dropbox for files, iCloud for calendar and contacts. Dropbox is great because it's totally cross-platform; can be installed on Mac, PC and Linux. UbuntuOne is another option not listed. It just came out with a beta for the Mac, so it can be considered cross-platform as well.

Dropbox has alway served me well for files and I still use that to sync all my files between my home Mac's, iPad and my works Windows machines.

I do use iCloud for Contacts and Calendar sync etc and I also use Omnigroups own sync server for my omni products.

I use both iCloud and SkyDrive. I find SkyDrive to be a bit more universal.

I will say one thing about Skydrive. Their mobile apps for iOS and Android are really nice.

I still like Amazon's Cloud Drive though. Their mobile apps are just as nice. In fact, they just came out with a really nice photo app for Android. You Android guys out there should give it a look-see.
