Yup. It's actually quite durable and gives a little cushion feeling.

I installed about 1800 square feet of click and lock cork floor at our renovated church coffee house in 2007. Six years later and it is holding up well and still looks great. It is quiet, especially compared to hardwoods or laminates. It feels warm and soft underfoot but is quite durable. Maintenance so far has been sweeping and damp mopping.

After reading this, cork flooring sounds like a nice possibility for my kitchen but would your put it under the cabinets also? If its kind of cushy, would it be a good thing to lay first then cabinets on top? Just wondering....

Max,
I wouldn't put any floating floor under kitchen cabinets. A nailed down hardwood or a glued down floor you could put under the cabinets before you install them, it is actually quite difficult to put them under the cabinets after they're installed. ;-)
