    2005 if you are looking for a quicker and more standards compliant compiler. 6.0 if you are looking to work on legacy code
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    2005, because it goes with the standards. Judging by the question, you are still learning the language (we are always still learning it, but in this case I mean getting used to the basics) so learning in a standards compliant compiler will help you more down the road.
