For a fair comparison Swift should only use libraries that are available both on macOS and Linux.


Are any projects using Swift outside of the Mac eco system?
Would it be more fair if Swift was Mac only? (re Visual Basic)

Would you include React when evaluating Javascript and Angular4 when evaluating TypeScript? Why should a standard library be evaluated differently from any other library?

That's more the issue.

If the standard library for one language ensure better interop between third party libraries, then it becomes significant, but if it is an independent feature then I see no difference between standard library and third party library.
