Do I need Kobo Desktop?

Have a Kobo Glo & (as long as it is reliable) it seems great. However, what is the point of Kobo Desktop which always seems to spend hours sync'ing (do I need this as I only use one device?), recommending books I don't want to buy/read & furthermore only shows books sourced via Kobo i.e. about 1/4 of my device library?

Yesterday I logged out of Kobo on my Glo, thinking it was unnecessary, and my Glo suddenly auto-reset thereby losing me the DRM ability to read my loaded books (had to use ADE to reinstate these which was tiresome) & it also lost my Kobo free books.

If I uninstalled Kobo Desktop and relied on my own book backups & Calibre (which has within a week produced a Kobo Touch driver - for which many thanks to them), what would I lose?
