It's definitely concerning on the surface, though I'll admit my ignorance when it comes to the person in question, as I know nothing about him. I do know I don't like EA's ethics, but I have no idea how much he had to do with that.

Well, I use HaXe, as you know and as you do, too. I really got used to the platform even though I disagree with the team's recent decisions to mainly redesign and refactor what has previously worked and not to fix what has been a problem since the beginning (android sound issues and hxcpp garbage collection, for example). So, even not being happy with the person in charge can't be a big enough reason to not go with a certain product :)

The CEO of Unity believed that the former CEO of EA was eligible and was the right man to take control of Unity. I'm sure he's making the right decision :) otherwise he's screwed

The only thing that worries me, is that Unity is now HUGE - there's a lot of money floating around in that company. If they have plans to sell, go public, etc, there will potentially be a lot of politics there. While most developers don't like EA, I'm sure there are financial aspects that are appealing to certain parties, and thus potential reason to take in such a CEO.
