Into New Year Twenty Ten (2010)

I am watching the live telecast of the lowering the ball ceremony held annually in Times Square, NY.

Colloquially, I think we pronounced whole decade in thousands by saying year Two Thousand One to year Two Thousand Nine.
There are still style in variation in saying "Year Two Thousand Ten" versus "Year Twenty Ten".
Which one sounds better?

As my biased hint:
Which year the first Nobel Prize was awarded?
One thousand Nine hundred one (1901) or Nineteen o One (1901)?

How does Year Twenty o One sounds? Year Two Thousand One?

  2. Good dude!!

    Nineteen o One (not nine)!! sounds better.

    Thus for the corollary: Twenty ten Sounds better.
