To .Mac or not to .Mac, that is the question

Recent announcements notwithstanding, has anyone used .Mac that could perhaps let me know if they feel the service is worth the yearly fee? Further, if you are married, do you have one for your Wife, or do you simply allocate some of the space available with your own account to your spouse?

I’m debating a .Mac account, or two, in the near future. I’m very interested in photocasting, and a few of the other announcements that came and went today. My main concern the the issue of space.
