In landscape mode the Home button will probably not be used that often. However, the Home button does very well when in portrait mode. If you like to have many applications opened and decide to switch to portrait mode you will notice the clutter. It's not easy to switch from one application to another by trying to press the application's icon. The better application switching method is using the Home button. The position of the button is perfect for your hand and thumb.
