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!
