In spoken Polish both systems are used; personally, I like the 12 hour one better as it sounds more mature to me, though sometimes it's more comfortable to use the other one; I'm not totally consistent on it.

Additionally, I'd never call the midnight "zero", it's always dwunasta (w nocy) lit. twelfth (in night). Maaaybe occasionally dwudziesta czwarta '24th'.

I use both systems (I prefer 24-hour, so I keep my computers set to it; also, IRC clients almost always use 24-hour), and I remember times in whichever system I hear about them in. In speech, I only use 12-hour, but I'm in America and everyone here uses 12-hour.

I think I'd actually say "twelve" about midnight/zero o' clock, but I believe I'm the most likely just to actually say "midnight".

You do, in French, say "Midi trente Noon thirty" (12h30) and "Minuit trente Midnight thirty" (00h30).

I wasn't raised on the 24 hr system, nor do I ever use it. I've tried to, to look more "European," but ultimately I find myself saying, ok, 16 hundred, if 2 o'clock is 14 hundred then 16 hundred must be 5 o'clock. I don't have the system down in my head.

One strange thing that a lot Americans say which I never say are markers such as quarter to, ten after, etc. I've began to become a fair bit more acquainted with terms like quarter to, quarter after, but I still find myself saying five fifty-five or four forty-five since it's easier to comprehend more quickly for me.

It's not hard to use the 24-hour system. Just subtract twelve from any hour larger than twelve to convert it.
