Question About DC Comics' The New 52

A few things: They rebooted all the books at #1. Wasn't this reboot suppose to allow people to pick up the titles with no knowledge of the characters, and start from a fresh new beginning? I decided to look at a few of them, and they really didn't give any explanations as to who or what was going on. It became sort of obvious that you had to already know the previous history of the character. I know they did an issue #0 for all the books a few months ago. Was that suppose to be the 'origin' stories to give new readers an understanding as to who the characters are, and their back stories? I would imagine it would also be for longtime readers, giving them knowledge as to who the characters are meant to be today. Was Green Arrow always this young? DC rebooted comics before, right? Wasn't there a name for that? I know each big change becomes an era that a string of the comics fall into, like Pre-Crisis, Post-Crisis. Will the New 52 become a new era, like 'Bronze Age' or whatever? Help me out here geekzoids! ;)
