I have installed Visual studio code from a .deb package. So now that they provide a snap package, what would happen if install it as a snap package (without removing the former)?

I see from this answer that it is isolated file, so how where does it store extension files and configs? Are the configs isolated for snap files

Applications installed as snap are indeed isolated, and will not interfere with the same application installed from a .deb package. Also user settings are isolated. User settings for a snap are stored under a directory "snap" in the user's home folder.

  • what about the code command in terminal?
