Agreed, terrible idea.
1) Those thinking you are going to get more screen size, highly doubt it. I have a hard time believing it would be practical for Apple to introduce and implement another screen size where you are only gaining a few pixels in one direction.
2) I use the iPad with young kids including some with downs syndrome. They can easily understand the home button and what it does, a multi gesture, nah.
3) How would you get into DFU mode if needed? Could this be a another attempt at making some jailbreaking procedures not work?
4) What's the compelling reason for changing? What would replacing the home button give to the customer? Sure for Apple it reduces costs, but for the end user?
Apple, if it isn't broken, don't try fixing it!
At least they relented and gave us the option for designating the purpose of the mute button in 4.3 beta. Listen to the people.
