How do we say "2000", "2010"...?

Some people say two thousand for 2000. But we can also say twenty hundred (just as we say "nineteen hundred" for 1900).

And for the following years:
    2001 two thousand (and) one or twenty-o-one
    2002 two thousand (and) two or twenty-o-two
    2010 two thousand (and) ten or twenty-ten
    2025 two thousand (and) twenty-five or twenty-twenty-five
