Naturally VFP9. If it weren't the case MS wouldn't even be able to market and sell version 7,8 and finally < s > 9. 9 is much more easier, powerful, stronger, stable, ... than VFP6 and weaker in a few very minor areas. Most strikingly you would have:

-Intellisense. Even when I need to write code for VFP6 I first write it under 7,8, or 9 just because of intellisense and then copy paste in VFP6.
-Much more and enhanced functions, SQL, commands. Especially SQL is much more capable, got closer to ANSI SQL.
-CursorAdapter.

Those are few ones and each of them is a good reason to upgrade by itself.

since you are late enough to go to VFP9 you may as well try using Visual Studio express 2010/MSSQLExpress 2008 R2/MSSQL CE first for free. IMHO it is better (easier, powerful ... but easy is a relative term. It is very hard if you think like you do in VFP. If you go under taking the pain of learning, what you gain is much more).
