It is still a terrible corporation, and just like any other, they don't care about what's right or wrong, but about the profit. Thinking that microsoft would do only good things to unity because they have added bash shell to windows or because they are making good decisions with github or because they have more open source stuff these days is really naive. It’s true they have been doing many anti consumer moves over 10 years ago and since then, many of them got dumbed down. But they are doing them mostly on the markets they don't have monopoly or in markets where open sourcing stuff would mean getting more workers for free. Linux is the market leader in the cloud services, and this is because Linux system is lightweight, free and open sourced. Something that windows server can't fight with. The only reasons why windows server still does exist are: - Active directory, important feature for big companies, linux still doesn't have any good solution for such stuff - Companies that haven't been able to move their servers (including game servers) to linux. Microsoft understands this too, and because of it they have been actively trying to monopolize the market the only possible way they can. Creating a solid environment in which users wouldn't want to leave or even would pay more for it than normally. Now the problem for microsoft is, Unity is a big corporation too, with multiple divisions that are in direct competition with microsoft services. Buying such a company brings a lot of problems in terms of laws. Every time a company tries to buy out someone else, government checks If such a takeover will cause monopoly (in most of the planet), there are obviously workarounds to this, for example epic could never buy unity because this causes monopoly, but they could get their hands on quixel because they weren't a company that makes assets. So If Microsoft would even think about buying out Unity, they would want to get only a few products. And this definitely doesn't count Unity engine. Their xbox division doesn't care at all about unity and creates everything in ue4 (besides wastelands 3, which has been in production even before xbox started buying out companies). The only game they have lately released made in unity is ori (Microsoft doesn’t work with the developers anymore) and cuphead (which is also on switch and ps4 so they have a bit different contract).
