Unlimited Page Options.
Your homepage (or any page for that matter) can include only the blocks you want. This includes a slider, feature boxes, page content, recent posts, upcoming events, a twitter feed, widgets, and a big footer area.
On top of the fact that you can put whatever you want on your homepage, you can also sort each of those blocks. Want to stick the slider at the bottom and the twitter feed at the top? You can do all that and more!
