[Q] Home Button Placement?

Where should the Home button be?

I've had the Evo, Hero, Optimus, Moment, Evo Shift, and now the Photon
With the first 5 phones.. the Home button has always been to the far left side. And with the exception of the moment (only 3 buttons, no search), all of them have the same 4 buttons which I've grown to love.

But I notice the LG G2X and now the Photon have the Home key as the second key.. which frustrates me to no end.

The Home key, is like the escape key.. its the button you press to get out of whatever and go to the home screen. Much like a keyboard, the escape key is on the far left side.. not in the middle. If you put the escape key next to the "T" key.. it wouldn't be so easy to find it. The same goes for the Home key.. having it on the end is the most natural and intuitive place for it.

Why would you ever put it as the number 2 button? I constantly hit the menu key trying to go to the home page. I've had the phone for 2 weeks now, hoping I'd get use to it.. but I feel like I shouldn't have to. It is just stupid placement.

Perhaps others agree or feel differently?
