Default What version of Maya do you use?

Hi guys,
I'm just wondering what version of Maya most of you are using at the moment.

If you're using an older version please tell us.

Thanks for replying!

8.5 and 2010.

I have used ever one but stuck with 8.5 for ages because I had a good tool set for it but now most of those are in 2010.

2008/2009 was very buggy and more memory hungry than 8.5 for me - 2010 has not crashed on me once yet.

I have 7 and 2008.

I love 7. I only use 2008 as mental ray isn't broken in the mac version.
I found that 8.5 was the buggiest release they made.

At work we're still using 4.5 and 7, as well as 2009.

i try to be updated on this one. i started using Maya since version 6 (so glad to see that v6 users are still around and they are more in numbers than v8/8.5 users!!!!!) and get the latest version as soon as possible! - i'm a software freak, i must admit. currently i use 2010. As per work requirement (in my studio), i work in 2008 and 2009 too, but i like 2010. i haven't come across any problems with this version since the day i got this version, but with 8.5 and 2008, i had a lot of problems. 2009 was pretty good one too.

That many people using 2010? Personally, I didn't find it to be too attractive.

2009 for me.

We've got 2010 but not installed it as yet, probably will do next year some time.

i think 2010 sounds wicked... never used it tho. I like the idea of an all in one, if it works! I think someone else said this, but it would be great for a freelancer.

It's pretty stable on the Mac. Not sure about the PC however.

I use Maya 8 and have only played with 2009 for about an hour so I cant say much about it, so far I like 8 but again haven't had much experience on any other version.
