disadvantages of not having gmail?

I get my Eris today and am planing on using the sticky in the forum to sync my outlook with the phone. Does anyone here not have a gmail account at all? I am wondering what is the disadvantage to not having/using gmail with the phone. I would rather stick with my pop3 account, though I guess I can set up a gmail account as well if needed. Thanks for any advice you can offer.
