I have a question on Amazon Fire tablet

based on recs a long time ago, probably on this group, I sought out an Amazon Fire today at staples.
well, the person "working" there was too uninterested in my questions so I'd like to put them to anyone here who might have an opinion...
The guy told me that this was a demo model so it didn't have an operating system.
But that I could get an app to install one.
and it uses amazon's own operating system.

so is this true?
and what do you think about the OS?

thanks.

oh the model is the one that is $50.00. apparently that is a good bargain.

1. A friend has one. They have an OS.

It's a WiFi device that comes with apps built in.
