Function: interjection
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.

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.

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.

exclamation of joy, origins much-contested, but definitely pre-dating online games such as Counterstrike and Everquest- oldest usenet post containing such usage is January 08 1996. Said to originate from 133tspeak (which would pre-date that post by several years), an exclamation of 'root!'- meaning someone had achieved root-level access in a Xnix-based system, and thus, had full access.
"I'm required to enter an example! 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"

a term used to express joy or excitement. You will find this word in sketch gamers' vocabulary. Should only be used over the internet and should not be found in the dictionary.
