Given that "twenty twenty" is already in our vocabulary as a "target date" for politicians, a measure of eyesight quality and a Grates song I think "twenty twenty" will be used for 2020. So obviously the natural thing would be to have 2010 as "twenty ten".

although I am not sure if past dates have anything to do with it. In the 190_'s we called the year "nineteen - oh - ___". I don't know of anyone who has called years in the last decade "twenty - oh - ___"..... so maybe "Two thousand and Ten" will catch on. shrugs

In Dutch I use two-thousand-nine, when literally translated. But in English Twenty-Ten sounds nicer to me.

My mother says two-oh-nine (I facepalm every time) but for 2010 I'm going to adopt that phonetic style with two-oh-ten.

Probably two thousand and ten.

But why is it a big deal, doesn't everyone here still live in the 80s?[/pleasedon'tkillme]

In a somewhat related news, we are closing in on the 10th year anniversary of 11-19-1999 which was the last date with all odd number digits until way off in the future at 1-1-3111!

I wonder if by 3111, if Walt Disney's head will still be frozen or if it will it be attached to some android body? Despite making all those kiddie films, that guy sure was (is) a freak!

Damn and I forgot to celebrate 8-28-2008, what was I thinking? Oh well, here's to 2-2-2020!

I will be using twenty-ten after we make the transition from twenty-ought-nine.

I think I blame the movie 2001 for inserting this idea that we should pronuce this new millenium as "two thousand."

@Turbo: so what were we supposed to call the year 2000, twenty-zero? it would've happened on its own, 2001 or not.
