The actions "Press-and-hold" and
"Tap-once-(-maybe-twice-so-the-device-actually-notices-)" with the
Home button both have a function on the N770 and the N800.  The
function/action mappings were swapped between the 700 and 800 (very
correctly, IMHO!) so that the behaviour is now

Press-and-hold == minimise all applications; display home screen
Tap-once == show the application chooser over the top of the current application

As I say, these were the other way around on the 770, which was
sub-optimal for the way I use the device.  I'm very pleased they're
swapped round ... :-)
