lol, I'm the only 20-10 so far! C'mon, anybody with me? Hmm, I don't know why I say it that way, hadn't thought about it. Just sounds right when I say it.

20-10!

As one of my friends says: "remind people we never said
'One thousand nine hundred ninety-seven' for 1997!"

Same here (Irish). I think two thousand ten/two thousand and ten are the same thing really, but the 'and' is dropped in the US (and maybe Canada?).

Two thousand and ten for me. I see we are a minority. :-)

ETA: Found an interesting point at Wiki saying that people actually prefer the rhythm and that from 2011 on, twenty-eleven etc. might sound better than two thousand and eleven. I think there's some truth in that. Two thousand and ten has a nice flow, while twenty-ten sounds weird to me. But twenty-eleven, mesa likes. :-)

20 10. Although after seeing 2k 10... I really like that a lot. We'll see what happens in the next year.

20-10 but we're hosting the soccer world so it's been marketed to bits (and drummed into us) as 20-10

It's because saying 'and' in a number is supposed to indicate a decimal place. Saying two thousand and ten turns the number from 2010 to 2000.10. I'm guessing from the responses here though that this isn't the issue in England/Ireland/Australia.

20-10 because the Winter Olympics are being held in the province I live in, and we've been hearing 2010 for a long time around here, gearing up for them.

Yep, 20-10 here. But in my job, we've been talking about 20-11 and 20-16 for years, so it doesn't seem strange. I'm just waiting for some geek to start saying it like 2 zip 1 zip just to be weird.
