So Marc Whitten, ex-Xbox (right after a bunch of losses and mass-layoffs ), ex-Amazon, so another old white guy Marc Whitten... And good old trust-worthy John Ricattelo, the other old white guy loves Marc, cant sing Whittens's praises enough. Btw I am an old white guy, the irony isnt lost on me.
His apology is hollow and worthless, I imagine people dont a flying f*ck if he is "actually or genuinly sorry, " for the sh*t storm he and his fellow execs created. As one prominant Unity dev put a while back, its too little too late.

"Unity say that folks can stay on prior TOS applicable to the version of Unity that they use, but they don't explain in the blog how prior TOS will be documented legally and for posterity. Unity also won't outright kill the install/engagement tracking, but instead promise to make it an option that devs can opt into, as an alternative to a 2.5% revenue share agreement, and they note that the metrics will be "self-reported" by the client. This is a similar scale walk-back as what WoTC did back when they ended up in the SAME situation, but everything will hinge on lawyers getting involved to set everything promised in stone. Unity also say nothing of the mysterious processes already imbedded in the runtime that phone home to Unity (personal note - I personaly block all games I play on my PC from talking to the internet for this very reason).
