Well, I don't think I can add anything that hasn't been said already so I'll stop here
Edit: the displayed devices were just out of the box and not connected to WIFI, so all of them were running the firmware 2.4.3 (or was it 2.4.2?). With this firmware the home screen is exactly the one we are used to with other Kobo devices (carousel and everything, no tiles to be seen).
Wondering if there are copies of 2.43.foirmware one can sideload
Don't hate the Aura screen, just feel it is useless, ugly, unstable, and cluttered
