VScode vs VScodium on Debian - which one to use!?

hello dear experts  

 

the question today is: VScode vs VScodium on Debian - which one to use!? i want to work with VSCode on Debian  - now i have heard that there also a alternative Kit exists.

vscodium  


what do you say - can we install this on Debian too - without any hassle?


We have covered Visual Studio Code before so you must know how much of an awesome code editor it is. 


While VS Code is open source freeware, its source code is only available on Microsoft’s official GitHub repo and
 its downloads are licensed under a closed source license which contains telemetry so you’ll be happy with the app we have for you today.
VSCodium is a tracking-free, free and open source build of Microsoft’s Visual Studio Code created so that developers
 will not have to build VS Code from source which contains telemetry/trackers.
This fit is accomplished by using special scripts to clone the vscode repo, build it from source, and then upload the
 resulting binaries to VSCodium’s GitHub releases free of telemetry passes.
With that being said, VSCodium is a replica of Visual Studio Code and thus, works in the same way with all the features
 and support present in its parent project. Except for the app icon – that’s different.

Features in VSCodium
Free to use
Cross-Platform: Available on Windows, GNU/Linux, and Mac.
Open source with source code available on GitHub.
Native support for several languages.
Additional functionality using extensions.
IntelliSense and smart code completion.
An advanced and robust built-in debugger.
Native support for Git.

Unless you are hell-bent on using a piece software because you don't want to provide any support to a commercial organisation, then choose Codium.  Otherwise choose code, because it is support by a commercial organisation that has a vested interest in its success.
