1. An abbreviation for newbie.

Noob indicates a novice, or someone new or inexperienced. Also rendered Newb or n00b.

2. Someone behaving or giving the impression to others that they are a novice (even though they might think otherwise). Often used as an insult or derogatory remark intended to imply that the person is stupid, idiotic or has little or no skill. Also rendered as newb or n00b.
3. Work done by a newbie. A derogative term indicating a poor level of work - especially where a higher level of work would normally be expected. Thus a noob installation is one poorly performed which suffers from problems.
