MUST I have a gmail account?

I am very happy with my Lumia phone, but there are some apps I must have for work that are only on iOS and Android so I am thinking of getting a Note 4.
I don't like Google and avoid it wherever I can. Do I need a gmail account to download apps etc, or can I just use my Hotmail account instead?
