Byobu: Scott Bragg
Byobu is a GPLv3 open source text-based window manager and terminal multiplexer. It was originally designed to provide elegant enhancements to the otherwise functional, plain, practical GNU Screen, for the Ubuntu server distribution. Byobu now includes an enhanced profiles, convenient keybindings, configuration utilities, and toggle-able system status notifications for both the GNU Screen window manager and the more modern Tmux terminal multiplexer, and works on most Linux, BSD, and Mac distributions.
Enlightenment 0.17: Craige McWhirter
Enlightenment is not just a window manager for Linux/X11 and others, but also a whole suite of libraries to help you create beautiful user interfaces with much less work than doing it the old fashioned way and fighting with traditional toolkits, not to mention a traditional window manager. It covers uses from small mobile devices like phones (like Samsung's Android competitor, Bada) all the way to powerful multi-core desktops (which are the primary development environment).
Whilst there's no other planned speakers, everyones got an opinion (Unity? GNOME3?) so I think there's plenty of meat for other discussion.
