    TextMesh is the old legacy text component for text in World space.

    The Text - TextMeshPro component is the newer and still on active development replacement for the old TextMesh.

    UI.Text is the legacy text component for text using the Canvas system.

    The UI - TextMeshPro text component is the newer and still on active development replacement for the UI.Text component.
