Under vs Less Than
Are both of these correct? Or only the second one?
- You can get there in under 10 minutes.
- You can get there in less than 10 minutes.
I'm not sure we always need to assume that written language requires a more formal (grammatically normative) register. I do agree, though, that the use of 'under' in this context is more colloquial. I would say use whichever blows your hair back, but do it under the radar when the purists are lurking!
