Why does MS keep making VS worse

So this morning I used a template to generate a 3rd party Maui app. Checked it out and closed it.

Open my app and F5. Android emulator opens with the 3rd party app not mine. Confusing (actually very confusing) but VS has been degrading for a while now so not surprised. Ok so kill emulator. Lets try to open my app, nope it has the 3rd party app. SO REBOOT!!!!

Open VS and build my app. Run it. Oh it ran. Stopped app (have close button). I see where I want to put a breakpoint. F5, status bar shows "Ready" (that is about all it does now) and the emulator toolbar item is now ready to go. What that means it that the previous F5 tried but VS and Emulator will not do anything. When I did F5 it did show for short time Building. The project had already been built. The emulator had the build.

At present it seems that one execute then reboot. SPEED WOW DEVELOPMENT IS NOW SO FAST oh that was wrong I would love to speak with someone from the deployment team at Visual Studio and let them watch my system.

I cannot put it more bluntly. THIS IS THE WORST MAJOR SOFTWARE RELEASE I HAVE SEEN IN DECADES.
