1.Origonally written simply as woot(or WOOT) abreviation of Wu-Tang,specifically referring to the Wu-Tang Ninja Clan made by Aaron Anderson of Oakley,CA in 1997.This was done in order to spam Aaron and his brother with WOOTs over ICQ.Aaron thought it was funny,but Greg hated it.It eventually drove him nuts resorting in him running around EQ as Zarius the Ixzar Monk running around screaming woot wherever he went,and eventually in him even spamming chat rooms and other on-line games(even Yahoo chess) alike.Also the DM who created this's good friend Hell Fire spammed up Quake with it back in 97'.
2.Nonsensical gibberish you can just shout cause it's funny,and gets annoying really fast.
3.Warped into w00t by on-line nerds trying to make sense of 4 people shouting it all over the place,resulting in Quake players rationilizing it as We Own (the) Other Team,seeing that it became most fun to shout specifically as players where fragged,or at the end of matches.Also fabricated by Ever Quest players to mean "I won the battle" or "I leveled" or some other cool event,due to people just asking Greg Anderson,hey what does that mean?...it sounds cool..does mean huzzah or victory?" and him only answering with "uh yeah,sure" or more woots.This eventually evolved to w00t due to sheer bordom of saying it all the time.
4.An obnoxious spam tactic where one types it several times,copies,paste,repeats.This is know specifically as The Attack Of A Thousand Woots.

word of the day: December 12, 2007
An expression of joy and excitement.
I just got an A on my test. w00t!
w00t was originally an acronym for "we owned other team" but used 1337$p34|< for some of the letters(w00t instead of woot). It is now commonly used as an interjection of joy.
"w00t! I pwn3d j00!"
"Oh! You see that hs??!?! W00T4G3!"
1) An Expression of joy generally used by computer gamers and hackers.
2) An exclamation of victory or triumph over an obstacle such as winning a large prize at a LAN party.
3) A part of the 1337 language.
History: The current-day use of the word w00t stems from hackers in the early to mid 80's. While communicating with each other groups of hackers such as Razor1911 would need lingo which nobody else would be able to understand to express milestones in their hacking. One such milestone was gaining root access, but the term rooted or "gained root access" was easily understood so the term was changed to w00t to help disguise. Because of the difficulty of "rooting" many times the term w00t would be much in a celebratory tone. It later evolved to simply be a celebratory remark rather than a hacking milestone.
#1 LOL... I got him to redirect his ddos attack to 127.0.0.1, w00t!
#2 after winning the Radeon X1900 XTX, Billy said "I am teh 1337... w00t!!"
#3 well I keylogged and doom9'd his box and... yep, w00t!!!
Generally used to express a form of joy. The word originated in competitive online gaming as an acronym for "we own other team." The term has since adopted a more general meaning.
w00t we just smashed that team hard.
I got a new car, w00t.
W00t is a short expression of joy. In hindsight, reverse engineering has erronoeusly determined that this is an acronym for "we own the other team", but of couse that is patently absurd.
W00t never stood for "we own the other team"
when on an online video game, instead of typing "yay" or hooray", you type w00t!
I killed you! w00t!
woohoo, or expression of happiness or accomplishment
ex. i beat you w00t!
