It finally died after 5 years so was forced to buy a new phone ...
It took it 5 years to die? Total garbage!! If it were iPhone it would've slowed down to the point where you couldn't have used it 3 years ago. Thus enabling you to have an excuse to buy new technology.
VS 2010 is still my favorite as well. Only downside is it does not connect to the newer versions of SQL so you cannot debug stored procs from SQL > 2012. Other than that it is much faster than any of the newer versions.
Not seen 2019 yet, but when first started 2017 all the methods had weird spacing and text above them. I never wrote anything there.
Also the line numbers had spaces in them. 30 31, big gap 32 33??

As far as I'm concerned Microsoft's UIs, across all product lines, have been getting worse since Office/VS 2010. They've gotten monochromatic and the framing features of the UI (take a look at Outlook's calendar grid lines for an example) have gotten so dim that they're useless.
The only bright spot has been the improvements in the Windows 10 context menus.
