What about prezi, then? No orgmode integration but seems to be the least "powerpoint-ish" and reminiscent of the "olden days"? http://prezi.com/

You've got any idea of how to conceptually map a orgmode document into the non-linear mode of prezi?  It certainly supports scrolling, though.

Not really! Though I wouldn't be surprised if most people use prezi more for the animations/transitions/uniqueness than really using the non-linearity. Does that make sense? As in, I know you can go to "slide 1" (or zoom in on some area as your "slide 1"), move on to some other things and then quickly whip back to slide 1 as you say, "Now, remember this information I spoke of earlier? Let's look at how that's affected by what I just referred to" or something like that.

I guess I'm taking "non-linear" to mean how you navigate through the information, not solely the fact that prezi is on a huge canvas and thus not a sequence (linear) of slides.

If you just mean the ability to revisit things... I think there should definitely be a way to put your presentation together in advance so you revisit various things and make the appearance of non-linearity. But it will still be fullscreen slides showing one after another, not twirling and whirling around a canvas.

In looking for the perfect slide show generation from org-mode I have so far checked the following and found that they have serious problems:
  • epresenter - Keyboard gets stuck, little control over display.
  • org-s5 - No support for pages overflowing, e.g. when showing a long slides I would like to scroll
What about beamer? To date I haven't found anything I like as much! It just seems to do about everything... even if that means hunting down the occasional obscure code to force it to do my will!

You can combine it with impressive! and do some fantastic things during presentations: http://impressive.sourceforge.net/
