I have been in several homes for paint jobs and when I walk on the floor it bounces and creaks. I casually talk with the homeowner and they are very dis satisfied about the floating flooring.
Being on this situation first hand, I would stick to the nail down tounge and groove. I would also recommend a good strong thick sub flooring that is screwed down and in every 6 inches.
