Nope, not at all.  PHP 6 is a rounding error, very thinly used, at most.  PHP 5.3 is the most popular; PHP 5.5 is current.  The right way to think about this question is, "What does PHP 6 have that I need to do a job that I cannot do with PHP 5.5?"

Where exactly do you think there is a PHP6 to download?

I asked this question because I saw a book being sold at Amazon.com about PHP6 and MySQL. I think your answers were very indicative of the PHP status quo, thank you for responding.

I think PHP 6 (kinda) became PHP 5.4 - but Ray may correct me
