Craig Grannell nails all the points why getting rid of the home button isn’t happening. About 10 minutes after installing iOS 4.3 beta on my iPad the whole thing froze (I assume because I was gesturing between apps like a mad fool). The iPad wouldn’t respond to any input and I had to force a restart (holding both the home and lock buttons). That home button isn’t going anywhere — mark the date and time.
