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.

Good, I didn't really find it necessary and it would most likely get overlooked, not used the majority of the time.
Also if someone marks their thread as Answered, this might prevent others from contributing to the thread, even though its been Answered, sometimes members can come up with alternate answers or other helpful information, etc.
I have to disagree with you trickykid. See, if i find a thread interesting, i browse through it, irrespective of how many replies it has. So, when reading through the posts i find that some point has been missed out, i mention it.
The fact that a problem has been answered or not would not prevent people from posting themselves. But, what do i know.

Some don't even reply cause there are already replies to threads/questions. I think if most would see a flag saying the question has been answered, then some wouldn't even bother even reading the thread.
Unless your speaking for all 90k + members we have here, I don't think all are going to think like you do.
The only real good I would see though is it would cut down on the "echo" responses some give, just basically repeating what others have said already ( don't count the ones minutes apart from one another ) and also it would help poeple when searching to find questions that apparently got an answer that worked which might help them out as well, shedding light that it will work for them as well.
Other than that, I see no use out of the system and will not miss it once its gone.
