True, though most people don't understand the difference between the noob and the newb.

The newb is shorthand for newbie, someone who is inexperienced and needs help.

The noob is generally someone who is experienced, but acts like a newb in order to gain attention. As well as someone who just acts stupid in general.

Interesting - I always thought they had the same meaning. So noob is somewhat pejorative?

I'm sure glad I am not the definitive "noob" then. I don't act like I'm clueless to get attention, if I ask a dumb question, it's because I really don't know the answer.

+1 to that Coolness. We should be able to decide how much we give.

John has said this before, that's how I know. The version of vBulletin this forum is using does not support variable rep levels. It would be nice, but it is not possible.

I guess he could make us all admins, that would work.

How's it going all? Creeping up on my first "Golden Turd" I believe you more experienced Gurus call them. I thoroughly enjoy this community, and look forward to working together to foster the good will and knowledge of Win7 to the less fortunate. Also fact that eventually Win7 will take over the computing world means we are all on the bleeding edge!

I have worked with Windows since before Windows; yes DOS my friends...DOS. I skipped Win 1.0, (I went through a Mac phase in the late 80's) Came back to Win 2... Win 3... 95... etc. My point is I flat out, bottom of my heart... KNOW that Win 7 is the best Windows ever!

Sure there are some quirks here and there... but what initial release hasnt had the same issues? It's faster... better... stronger than before. Can you tell I like it? LOL!

Enough ranting on the MS bandwagon gospel tour... I do enjoy it here!

Take care and watch out for falling golden turds!

Oh yeah... speaking of noobs... like my avatar?

I started with DOS too and jumped to 3.1 from there.
As for me, I don't think Windows 7 is the best yet.
But till now, Windows 7 IS the best but definitely NOT the best ever. There's still more to come

The 80's were a tough period. I am glad you recovered
