Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I think the point lupusarcanus is trying to make is that the title almost sounds like you're about ready to commit suicide or something...TBH, that's roughly the interpretation I had at first, too. Actually, I was thinking it would be another thread along the lines of DJ Shaji's "She's getting engaged", which did involve that kind of stuff.
No...it's more along the lines of exaggerating- "Now I can die, because I accomplished everything I ever wanted to do". Used to be a common expression- but then again, I'm living in the past.
The phrase works very weell when someone tells you something that they think will be climatic or impress you. Just casually say "Now I can die" and the sarcasm will kill them!
So no worries....ol' Sumguy isn't going to close the garage door and put his lips around the exhaust pipe...... (Although, now that I got such a high score, I'll likely never be able to beat it again and life will lose all meaning! )
