This is correct
> N00b = noob/newb = newbie = someone who's new (and therefore

This however, fails to show a vital difference between the noob/n00b
and the newb(ie).

A noob/n00b is unskilled/ignorant, but does not have the "newness" to excuse it.

A newb(ie) is someone who is new, and as a consequence unskilled.ignorant.

The terms are related, but not completely exchangable.
