It is true that your list did not include Poettering, but why? He is clearly badmouthing Mir (comparing to some engineering disasters, not very ingeniously as it happens), he offers no valid technical points, he is a Red Hat employee. I am not obsessed with him, but I think he employs dirty tactics in his fight for systemd and against Upstart. You have still not refuted this point other than substracted this particular person from the argument, for some reason. That is intellectually dishonest IMHO.
Let us leave him aside; another Red Hat employee (David Airlie) also badmouthed Canonical without offering any valid technical points, as quoted above (saying they don't have competent technical people). Other people expressed their opinions, in a mostly polite form, and with valid technical reasons; Airlie only made baseless accusations (such as lamenting the lack of source code, which was not true) and silly jabs (Jumping Sharks).
That is just one random Google+ thread, there are many other examples that I have linked above. I am not in the mood to curate any more examples for you.
