    Saying dates

    How does a native speaker of English say the following dates?

    1900 (nineteen hundred)?
    1905 (nineteen-o-five)?
    2007 (two thousand and four, or twenty-o-seven)?

    Thanks in advance

    I haven't heard "twenty-o-seven", but it'll probably become the default as we move along in the century, Demir. The others are natural.
