I really don't know to be honest. AFAIK there are no vst1 plugins at all for Linux.

I think that ~/.vst has been used for vst2 plugins for a long time on Linux, but don't know who started it.

The only vst3 plugins that I know of on Linux are the u-he ones. My guess is that they started installing into ~/.vst3 so that you can differentiate between the vst2 and vst3 versions.
