Default home button for tablet: physical, capacitive or virtual?

Which sort of home button do you prefer for larger touchscreen devices (e.g. 7-10 inch tablets).?

Virtual on tablets. On phones I prefer the physical because i'm more prone to using in portrait mode and the button is easy to locate, but tablets rotate more and I'd rather have a soft button that follows the screen orientation.

Virtual. Mainly because it's in a more convenient spot than in the middle of the device where I can not for the life of me reach in Landscape mode. At least it used to be.

Physical on a portrait device below 7" though. The one on my Note 3 is fine.

Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

The simplest solutions are often the cleverest. They are also usually wrong.
