Power BI Desktop slow after infrastructure update preview

The preview of the Power BI Desktop Infrastructure update preview option (Edge WebView2) is still not ready. This month I only lasted a few hours before turning it off again.

Most users are busy and dont have time to sit watching the "grey screen of death" or have almost every interaction with Power BI Desktop feel 5x slower.

What does your instrumentation tell you about what % of users have turned that preview feature on, and how many have turned it off again?

Please put more effort into improving this feature before making it mandatory - right now that would be a disaster.

If you encounter a perf problem with the Infrastructure Update preview feature enabled, please private message me and the Power BI engineering team will investigate
