Question engineered floor over concrete subfloor, glue-down or floating?


I just bought a 50 year old house that is on a concrete slab. I would like to install a hardwood foor, I would like to see what you recommend. Installing over concrete, I know I need an engineered floor. What is the best way to install it, glue-down or floating floor?

With a floating floor, I can place a vapor barrier and pad between the concrete and engineered floor. I assume this will make it a little softer to walk on. The glue-down method would have the wood directly attached to the concrete, therefore much harder to walk on. I assume installation of the floating floor is much easier.
