L means linear. Linear basically says that a change in sample value represents a constant change in what the sample value represents. So if you think of samples as representing voltage, and if a change of 8000 represents 1 volt, than a change of 16000 represents 2 volts.
I believe this is the standard method used on CDs and WAV files.
I am actually not familiar with any NON linear PCM system. If anyone knows of one, let me know. I would be curious to read about it.
Oh, and it's not boring - at least not to me
