Nice post but I would question if any of these are actual design systems? Component libraries for sure but a design system adds context to a component library adding details like tone of voice, colour usage and various other details. I've been involved in building a greenfield design system recently and the difference between a design system and a component library causes a lot of confusion so I think it's important to use the right language.
