If you are on Windows, you can use the Windows Subsystem for Linux with VS Code.

VS Code is available for Apple M1 chips. Make sure you click the "Apple Silicon" option when installing VS Code.

The Insiders build will get you the latest features in VS Code even faster. There are some things that are not available in the stable build. In my experience, the Insiders build has been stable and has fewer bugs, but I have gotten some versions that have a few bugs.

My recommendation is to use the default install, unless you want to have a sandboxed version of VS Code to mess around with. I'll usually use the Insiders build to try out extensions that I'm not sure if I'll like.
