Why is Rider so bad?

Seriously... howcome you are able to make such nice addons, and yet your IDE for C# is so bad.

Rider suffers from frequent crashes and the solution explorer's inability to refresh such that one **has** to restart the IDE in order for the changes to take effect, is detrimental to the overall productivity.

Please fix this.

 

**Edit:** removed the ranting - made it more constructive.

What do you find to be bad? I've been using Rider professionally for ~7 months without any issue.

In fact, I much prefer it to Visual Studio.

For starters, the frequent crashes or solution explorer's inability to refresh such that one **has** to restart the IDE in order for the changes to take effect.

I apologize for the ranting in the previous post, but I just expect more from JetBrains, considering they normally make such nice tools and add-ons.

By comparison Rider is much like Eclipse, and not Visual Studio.

The Rider is not bad and I am using it too, no crashes but it is clunky because it is running on Java, All Java applications are clunky and look not so nice comparing with native windows apps. Visual Studio GUI looks much better.
