 so I give up.. what does "non-linear" mean in this context?

I just been using imovie on my Mac to edit and re-export 
videos of the devsummit, and SUSpect it may mean that it can 
edit the video in its compressed format rather than needing 15 minutes
to import it into a linear format, editing it and spendign another 15 minutes
recompressing it..
