BTW, I assume you mean make an account with Adobe, not Sony.
Sorry, you're right, I did mean Adobe.

I don't use Kindle for PC, I download directly from the Manage My Content page on Amazon's site. I used to have Kindle for PC installed, back when it was a way to manage collections, but now that the collections on the PC app no longer work that way, I don't have it on my PC anymore.

No. It works in more countries than just the US, but is limited to certain countries and is limited to you having an Aura One (you can use it on other devices, but only if the account is also set up with an Aura One).

Overdrive integration, which is only on the Kobo Aura One, only works in some countries, it's true. However you can use Adobe Digital Editions to put Overdrive books on any Kobo device, and I believe that works anywhere Overdrive does. I've made extensive use of that functionality. It's one of the things I love about my Kobo.

Just a side note. When you use ADE you want version 2.0.1 because OD needs at least that version ADE. And all later version ADE can download eBooks with a new unbreakable DRM that I have no idea if a Kobo will work with or not.
