Which php version do you use and why?
Do you have much problems with old or new scripts which do not work with this version?
Does you hosting company limits your php possibilities?(safe mode etc.)

I use the latest stable version because I like to explore the new features. I havent had many issues with older scripts. No my hosting company does not limit my php possibilities since I am my host.

Latest, because of the bug fixes.

Mostly web hosting companies will limit the ability of php scripts to launch socket connections.

Always the latest stable version. Any others contain bugs, latest stable versions also have bugs just not as much.
