PCM encoding is considered linear because the steps are all the same "size" (voltage and time)
Not all encoding must be linear.
ATRAC for instance, (Sony minidisc format) and DSD are types which are non-linear.

Thank you for explaining this.

Thanks for the opportunity.
Imagine the savings, if you could figure out which samples needed more resolution and which required less?!
